Barnsey, Your statement of losses Sept.1939-Dec.1941 is flawed to say the least. You have taken the "major losses" from 19 convoys and represented these as being the total for 900 convoys. The true losses are very different as the following from "Lloyd's War Losses" for the same period clearly show:
BRITISH: 1677
ALLIED: 586
NEUTRAL: 384
TOTAL: 2647 TONNAGE: 7,714,074

TOTAL LOSSES 1939-1945: 5411 TONNAGE: 21,314,648
Seems a different story,
Bernard
