hi, Rob,

Starting with the assumption that the only democracy on the Axis side was Finland, this would be the UK's DoW on Finland on December 6, 1941.

There was a British Control Station for Swedish ships, no?

Something to do with the lejdtrafiken agreement?

Are we talking the “Atlantic Charter” meeting?
If so Roosewelt was onboard the USS Augusta and met with Churchill on the HMS Prince of Wales.

It might also be a trick question... he arrived at the meeting onboard the presidential yacht Pontomac and used the USS McDougal to transfer between Augusta and PofW.
