Information provided by Robbie Dinwoodie (nephew).
RNR Skipper Lieutenant John Dinwoodie commanded HM MMS 90, a motor minesweeper, from May to October 1942.
He was mentioned in despatches for brave or skilful conduct whilst escorting or protecting a convoy. This was for rescue operations undertaken during convoy PQ18.
John’s nephew has researched the rescue operations and written an account which is available to download here.
