Just want to pass along an interesting site I found relating to the HMS Periwinkle/USS Restless. It is an autobiography of Richard Kopff written for his
family. About 2/3 of the way through he relates his experience as the executive officer of the USS Restless, formerly HMS Periwinkle. As a graduate of the US
Naval Academy at Annapolis, he was part of the original crew that commissioned the ship in US service and went through training in Londonderry and took the
ship to the US as part of a convoy escort. I would like to know if anyone else finds this interesting.

There is a scrapbook of 55 photos taken on the Restless which include photos of Mr. Kopff and the other people mentioned in the previous site. Go to: http://www.navsource.org/archives/12/09066f.htm
