but because I need some help with them.
Odd Conrad Holm - Pictures and Documents:
My page Odd's Ships has more information on each ship. Some of them are also listed in my Ship Lists.
The Training Ship Tordenskjold
Odd Conrad is on the far right in the second row (ca. 1937).
The ship my father was on when he was sent to the camps in West and North Africa in the summer of 1941.
Shipmates S/S Ringulv
This picture was sent to me by a newly found shipmate of my father's from the S/S Ringulv, who was also in the labor camps with him, and who contacted me at the beginning of Aug. 2000. He's on the far right of the picture, and my father is 2nd from the left.
This ship was sunk in the Port Lyautey river during the allied invasion of Morocco in Nov.-1942, but was raised, repaired, and put into allied service. My father then served on her for about a year until Sept. '43, when he started school in London.
