Monday, March 15, 2021@00:46-Concerning the REQUEST…POSTED ABOVE-At the TIME, July 26/1942, during the U-90 SINKING, H.M.C.S. ST. CROIX I-81 WAS PART OF THE ESCORT GROUP, THAT SAILED IN THAT CONVOY/ON.113…C-2, WITH H.M.S. BURNHAM H82/TOWN CLASS DESTROYER AS ST. CROIX, H.M.S. POLYANTHUS K47, THAT WAS SUNK JUST PRIOR TO H.M.C.S. ST. CROIX I-81, and the REST of the GROUP. AFTER BEING ALLOCATED TO ESCORT GROUP C-2…, SHE/I-81 WAS ALSO IN C-4, I THINK, THEN AS MENTIONED C-5=FOR A VERY, VERY SHORT BRIEF TIME, WITH H.M.C.S. ARVIDA K113. C-5 WOULD HAVE BBEN IN AUGUST, 1943, THE MONTH PRIOR TO H.M.C.S. ST. CROIX’S SINKING.
