This archive is part of the Russian Arctic Convoy Project, which aims to create a multi-site museum around the shores of Loch Ewe dedicated to the Arctic Convoys. We have an Exhibition in Aultbea that is open every May to October where our extensive collection of convoy artefacts, pictures, photos, models and more are on display. You can find out more about our project here.Convoys Remembered” is an online archive of stories contributed by veterans of the Arctic convoys and their relatives. Here you will find memories of the Allied effort to deliver vital supplies to Russia during the Second World War. The conditions were brutal and the route was perilous. The convoy vessels faced threats from enemy warships, submarines, and aircraft, not to mention the Arctic conditions and rough seas. On this site you can explore this episode of the war as told by those who were there. If you have a story you would like to share with us then please click Get Involved to find out how.
