On Armistice Day my father used to boast that while serving on the Brambleleaf in convoy from New York towards Scapa Flow and refuelling escort vessels as required they received a signal that an Armistice had been signed and WW1 was over, within a couple of hours, he claimed, the convoy had been left hull down as Brambleleaf had gone up to top speed, presume the escort vessels had sufficient fuel to complete the passage without her. Anyone know her top speed, 14 knots perhaps ?
