My Grandfather Georg Helgesen recently passed away and I'm trying to find any information or accounts regarding his time with the Norwegian Merchant Fleet during WWII.
From this information held on this site I believe he was the first mate on the D/S Jacob Christensen which was scuttled in Rochefort, France In June 1940. The crew managed to to gain passage on an English vessel and landed in Falmouth, England.
