Operation Dervish was the first of the Arctic Convoys of World War II by which the Western Allies supplied material aid to the Soviet Union in its fight with Nazi Germany. The convoy originally sailed from Liverpool on 12 August 1941 and via Iceland arrived at Archangelsk on 31 August 1941. No ships were lost.

RFA Aldersdale was deployed in support of this operation.
