Icebreaker escorting a convoy in the North Atlantic.

Icebreaker escorting a convoy in the North Atlantic.

This picture was taken by my friend, who lives on Prince Edward Island. These vessels are out of Halifax, NS.

I was caught in a similar situation, in February 1972, when my ship, MV La Sierra, a Buries Markes ore carrier, was caught in ice, on our way to Sept Iles. We also had to retreat to Halifax

This is a russian ice-breaker from the FESCO-Company. Looks like a vessel from the KRASSIN-type.
Therefore the discription "A_Canadian_ice-breaker_leading_out_a_convoy_of_beleagured_ships_from_Halifax_Nova_Scotia" is misleading.
