I recently received some info from a distant cousin in Australia about his father.Does anyone have any information on
Gunnar Bergitron Selliseth.b.1913 Moskenes
From his discharge book:
11.12.1935-1937 ARANCE ( Deck boy then OD )
09.1937 HOEGH RAY ( Letmatros )
26.4.1939 LE HAVRE ( new in Hamburg )
21.10.1939 OHIO ( M/T Ohio )Matros/Amsterdam
22.10.1941 OHIO ( M/T Ohio )Ships Carpenter
? ? 1942 AGNES ( Bosun )
18.11.1943 ARDENT ( 3 Styrmann-3d Mate )
The LE HAVRE was renamed after delivery in 1939 to M/T OHIO and was managed by Leif Hoegh for Texaco.Gunnars son says his Dad told him he was torpedoed twice off Florida.
They would like any info on their father.
I have e-mail addresses.
I have passed on info for all ships except ARANCE which I cant find.
Thanks for any help. Ron
