Hei, I am trying to find crew members, ( names or other information ) who served with my father, Alfred Runde, on the following ships.
D/S. Blink. 13.03.1941 - 02.06.1941.
D/S. Grey County. 16.06.1941 - 28.05.1943.
D/S. Spurt. 14.07.1943 - 12.11.1943.
D/S. Olaf Bergh. 10.12.1943 - 17.07.1943.
D/S. Montevideo. 19.09.1944 - 09.04.1945.
D/S. Astra. 30.04.1945 - 17.12.1945.
I have managed to find this information from the National archives of Norway. He married my mother and lived in Bristol, this could have been during the period 17.07.1943 and 19.09.1944 as there are no ship records for these 10 months. He lived in Bristoluntil his death in 1960.
It is also known that he was involved in the evacuation of the British expeditionary Forces at dunkirk this is confirmed in the book 'Ute i Krigen' but there are no official records of this or what ship was involved.
ANY information about Alfred Runde who came from Runde in Herøy kommune in Sunnmøre Norway, would be greatly appreciated.
