I received the contact report 17 June 1941 at 15:15 UTC. Convoy was in PQ AM7817 (51-41N 014-23W), reported course SSW and speed slow. Course was later determined at 190 and speed at 6.5 knots. Campaign is Eastern Approaches.
I intercepted this convoy in PQ BE 3160 and later again in BE 3460. Second time was during daytime and I could confirm positively that there were no escorts. Convoy consisted of 9 columns of each at least 5 ships, so at least 45 hips total. Biggest convoy I have encountered I believe.
