The documents comprise of a summary of the actions of the convoys and their escorts in the North Atlantic. There is a relatively modern booklet (2005) entitled The Russian Convoy Club. Attached to this is an instruction to Gordon and others attending a ceremony at the Imperial War Museum 31st August 2005.
There is also a small hard backed book entitled Escort Carrier. This describes how the carrier Tracker joined the Royal Navy from neutral USA and the actions in which it was involved. The book had obviously been edited before going public in 1944. Various ship's names and performance details have been removed. Throughout the book Gordon has handwritten "back in" all the items previously "edit out".
Altogether there are about 20 photographs of which I have already written. The small hardback booklet contains about the same number.
I met Gordon in 2005. His admiration for his flotilla commander was absolute. This was Captain Johnny Walker RN a remarkable leader of men who went war with his ship's Tannoy blasting out the theme to A Hunting We Will Go - and a hunting they did go - with fantastic success in horrendous conditions. The flattop Tracker with telegrapher Gordon Johnson as ships sparky and six sloops all lead by by Capt Walker.
I also have a letter from Gordon written to me from an address of 57, Durham Court, Hebburn. Margaret, if you are a relative of Gordon, I would be pleased to give all these items to you.
