HMS ACTIVITY

This page is dedicated to HMS ACTIVITY. HMS ACTIVITY performed convoy escort duty, among other things. On one occasion her crew rescued a lifeboat of survivors from SS PETER SILVESTER. It is also dedicated to my friend from that ship, Robert Taylor, and his wife, Jean. They live in Winchester, England.
