OB-221 To Montreal

Alister's Third Voyage

The Dorelian needed some repairs which started on 12th September. She was ready to go again on 26th and left the Clyde on the 29th September 1940 joining convoy OB-221.

OB-221 dispersed on 3rd October, on 6th October one of its ships the Benlawers, on route to Durban was sunk, about half the crew, 24 men died. Alister by then was maybe 400 nautical miles away and would not know.

The Dorelian arrived in Montreal two weeks later on 12th October.
