The port city of Arkhangelsk was the only major contention between England and the Soviet Union. During the 'Big Switch', the RN attempted to get at the Soviet Fleet in the port but were unable to due to mines and the Red Air Force.

After the 1941 British Military Coup, the BEF returned to England via the port city.
