RIP, Geoffrey Shelton, Arctic Convoy Veteran, 1925 - 2018

Geoff SheltonGeoff Shelton was an Arctic Convoy Veteran, stationed on HMS Vindex to ship much needed supplies to Russia during WWII. Geoff was also a dear friend to Albion Overseas and in particular, our Managing Director, David Cant.

Geoff was born in Twickenham on 25th November, 1925 the eldest son of Reginald and Lillian Mary or “Poppy” Shelton. He had three younger brothers - Denis, Brian and John.Right from the start Geoff had a sense of adventure and was always up for a challenge. His father was the local Boy Scout leader in Staines, Middlesex and Geoff followed in his footsteps. Geoff became a leader in the Scout Pack and often narrated a number of very dangerous escapades where Geoff would lead his troop - including his reluctant younger brothers - into the night for “survival training” in nearby fields and rivers. The war had just begun and this was done against the backdrop of blackouts and the Luftwaffe flying overhead.
