Re: Torghatten

Yes Davidships, that certainly helps and the info that she was sold in August 1941 is the icing on the cake. The text with the photo (thank you Google Translate) helps also by putting it all in the correct (Quisling) context. All in all exactly what I was looking for so thank you very much!

Torghatten

Hello I saw that the Swedish passengership Eskilstuna Express (288 grt./1928) was renamed Torghatten. In Lloyd's 1942-43 her flag changes from Swedish to Norwegian (still as Eskilstuna Express) but only after the war (I found it in Lloyd's 1947-48 but I do not have access to Lloyd's 1946-47) did Llo...

Formigny

Hello, the Vichy-French freighter Formigny (2.166 grt./built 1915 although Miramar mentions June 1917) was captured by the British on December 9, 1940. As from 1941 she sailed under the British flag, with the same name. I try to find out what happened to her eventually. Both Jordan (The World Mercha...

Re: HMS Towy

Thanks Jan-Olof, Rohwer does not mention Garland so there must be a mix-up there.

Hi, according to Rohwer's "Chronology of the War at Sea" and some other sources which may have their info from Rohwer as well, the British frigate HMS Towy was part of EG.B3 which escorted convoy HX.239 in May 1943. However, according to Lenton and Miramar, this frigate was only commissioned on June...

Cape St. George

Hi, on August 5, 1940 the British Cape St. George was in a collision due to which she sank next day. According to Jordan it was with the Polish Grodno which I can not find (there was a British Grodno - so was it her?). But according to Miramar it was with the Yugoslavian Rad but she had been sunk by...
