My first post-pandemic research trip to the UK, Ireland, and Germany (May–June 2022) is already at the planning stage. Sadly, it will also be my last ocean voyage by cargo freighter (Halifax–Liverpool), as I shall have surpassed the terminal marker of 80 years. I shall be retracing the WW2 North Atlantic convoy route to Europe. Hopefully there will be no phantom wolf-packs lurking beneath the waves!
