My Father was 5th Engineer on the Northia during WW2. I understand she may have been included in both the Arctic, and North Atlantic convoys between the eastern seaboard of the United States and the Russian ports of Murmansk and Archangel.He told me this but I am struggling to locate the evidence. I am currently attempting to apply for both the Arctic Star and Atlantic Star posthumously for him. If anyone has any information given to long time lapse I would be grateful.
