There are some complications that can give a misleading understanding of when individuals actually crossed the Caspian if you only follow MOD info as to enlistment. My father enlisted at Kermine on 10 Feb 1942 so logic and the MOD date of his enlistment suggested he should have left USSR on the first ships out. However he contracted typhus in Kermine or another camp in the USSR so wasn’t able to leave when his colleagues left. He was left behind with other typhus sufferers until they either died or were well enough to leave. In Dad’s case this was probably early August though we don’t know for sure. So do try to get as much info from the MOD as you can but don’t necessarily add 2+2 and assume it makes 4 because all sorts of individual circumstances happened to make unique narratives.
