    Agree with Keith Brenda, in the. Days that your father went alongside another vessel in any sort of seaway with the ships equipment of those days in hand steering was a fete in itself.. Today one
    Does such with more modern ships on the likes of seismic ships which fuel and store at sea whilst continuing with their work . However they have the advantage of calm seas otherwise wouldnt attempt , the seismic vessel is on a dead steady course and speed computer. Controlled
    and you have Yokohama fenders down in case of any would be contacts As you say the supply vessel just normally uses a forward backspring amd keeps a slightly faster headway on the the supply vessel to keep the stern in. However your fathers manoeuvres were under much more difficult circumstances and obviously a well earned piece of seamanship and all merit to him. Regards JS. However still think your query has something to do with the insurance side of the business, even though there was a war going on it was still business as usual. Regards JS

    Have to agree with you J.S. I done a little digging myself and although S.U.B.O. Does not seem to give any abbreviation on the net, I find myself being directed to Insurers each search. Terry.

    hello,
    I've had another thought about this and I think he meant S.B.N.O = SENIOR BRITISH NAVAL OFFICER (or OFFICE) . There must have been such a Naval base in Archangel. Thanks for all your input.
    His Log writing is easy to read so I know that I haven't mis-read it !
    regards
    Brenda

    Hi Brenda.
    It could be Soviet Union Builders Organization, as it looks like someone was claiming repairs done, maybe an Allied form of Lend Lease

    Good morning

    Having spent some time researching the Convoys to North Russia I would offer the following:

    S.U.B.O. Archangel = SENIOR BRITSH NAVAL OFFIICER (SBNO)

    Convoy PQ 18 was approaching the Murman Coast when the incident described would have occurred.

    There were 40 eastbound convoys to North Russia excluding JW/RA 61A - repatriation of Russian POWs, and 35 return, westbound convoys.

    The convoy cycle was suspended three times - after PQ 18 (Sept - Dec1942), between February and November 1943, and between April and August 1944.

    Hope this is helpful.
