Engraving, Bequest of Sally Kent Gorton,
During the days o war, I sail on destroyers among blizzards and nights, at canceled lighthouses, when the convoy summed the transportation of caravans to the edge of ice, and where icebreakers met them. It was already glacial convoy, it continued after transferring of the caravan. The powerful icebreaker, “Sibir” (Siberia) in ten thousand of displacement, it confidently conducted caravans by heavily breaking ice. Its Captain Ponomarev became the first captain of the submarine “Lenin”, which is now among the first who disembarked winterers right to the station of the North Pole.
