Transcribed from a hand-typed manuscript, this is a poignant eye-witness account of the Battle of North Cape, as witnessed by a young signal-boy aboard the British warship HMS Belfast. This crucial battle to protect the vital convoys from Britain to Russia, was fought out in the Arctic seas north of Norway's North Cape, in the midst of winter, in some of the worst weather conditions anywhere in the world. It resulted in a crushing defeat for Nazi Germany when their battleship the Scharnhorst came under fire from several British and Norwegian ships and was sunk with the loss of 1,932 men. There were many heroes that day, and the events herein were experienced by a young lad named Harry C. Hall. This is his account, written in verse and incredibly moving to the very end.
