While acting as stern escort (the "Canteen Boat") to convoy RA62 outward bound from Murmansk to ports in Britain, the C Class destroyer HMS Cassandra was torpedoed in the Barents Sea by U365 (Leutnant Dieter Todenhagen). The entire forward part of the ship broke off and sank, with heavy casualties, but after Herculean efforts by the remainder of the crew, the rest of the ship was kept afloat and towed back to Murmansk by HMS Bahamas. There she remained with a skeleton crew, in what has been described as "the bleakest, most poverty-stricken corner of Stalin's tyranny, with the surly face of Soviet authority", until, a new dummy bow section having been built, she was seaworthy enough to sail home. This is the story of the sinking, the return to Murmansk, and the life of the crew that stayed with her, told in the words of those who endured it all.
