A convoy is a group of vehicles, typically motor vehicles or ships, traveling together for mutual support and protection. Often, a convoy is organized with armed defensive support, though it may also be used in a non-military sense, for example when driving through remote areas.
Famous quotes containing the word convoy:
“Pilgrim-manned, the Mayflower in a dream
Has been her anxious convoy in to shore.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
