A warship built in the U.S.A. under 'Lease Lend' for the Royal Navy she was classed as a 'Destroyer Escort' and re-classed in the Royal Navy as a 'Frigate'.


As with many warships in WW2 she was 'manned' with Men and Boys many of whom together with the ship lasted less than 12 months.


The 'Boys' became 'Men' in that short time and many were wounded and died for freedom and their country.
As in the previous book by the author 'Last But Not Least' which was about a 'sister' ship these are personal memories of some survivors with illustrations and photographs from the author's collection.


The author a Battle of the Atlantic veteran was 18 years old at that time, serving on HMS CARRON a destroyer protecting special convoys.


He retains his connection with the Royal Navy by being a volunteer working on the historic warship HMS BELFAST at London Bridge and he has also volunteered on HMS CAVALIER at the Historic Dockyard, Chatham, Kent.
