Convoys Remembered

Daniel Doherty

Written by Karen Mann (daughter)

I have a few photos of when my dad Daniel (Danny) Doherty served on HMS Kent during WW2 and thought you might like to use some of them. My dad did receive the special medal for the Arctic Convoys but sadly it was destroyed in a fire. He was so proud of his medal and showed it to just about everyone he knew and met! I am going to contact the Russian Embassy to see if I can get a copy of the letter where they awarded it to him (also destroyed) so that I have something to pass on to my son.

I think most of these were taken in 1942.
