Re: Question to forum members

Thank you both for taking the time to respond!

Marty, how very peculiar that you had that problem. I’ll run it by my “guy in Scotland” and see what he says.

Also, I’ve sent you both a test private message.

Question to forum members

Hi everyone! I was wondering, are any of you using the private messages feature and if so, is it working properly for you? I’m asking because I’ve sent a couple, without receiving a response, which has made me a little suspicious. I’m hoping it’s only a coincidence. But if indeed there is a problem ...

Re: M/T THORSHOLM

A quick search found him here (skipsfører means captain - dates and ports he signed on/off Thorsholm are given). https://www.sjohistorie.no/en/sjofolk/359724/monstringer The same site says he became an American citizen after the war, and that he was a recruiting officer for The Norwegian marines in ...

but should I continue to post them up here or pm you to continue privately...? I don’t want to upset the moderators by sticking on this one topic...?
Thanks again
John
It takes quite a bit to upset this moderator, so please continue to post here; others might benefit from them.

Thank you so much for checking, Phil!

Yes, we’re all fine. Thankfully, Laura appears to have sailed right past us.

Re: Royal Norwegian Navy WW2

Hello,

Try contacting the National Archives of Norway, they may have a record of his service, or could at least send you in the right direction, if those records are kept elsewhere. Just a warning, you may not get a reply straight away, so patience is a benefit; they will reply eventually.

Re: Shipwreck survivors/ historians/ experts please help

Warsailors.com is fine. I’ll have to add though, that the credit is not all mine; so many people (too numerous to name them all here) sent me original documents over the years, I just transcribed them, or summarized them. And a lot of the info came from books (named in my sources at the bottom of ea...

Re: Shipwreck survivors/ historians/ experts please help

Hmm - goodness, it’s been so long since I worked on this, but I usually named sources at the bottom of the pages, or sometimes at the top of the page (I’ll probable say something like “received from”). I probably have the letter somewhere in my archives but hard to get to right now. I imagine it ori...

Re: Shipwreck survivors/ historians/ experts please help

There’s a group in Norway who are involved in registering all the seamen and women who served on Norwegian ships during the war. They may know of someone who served on Skytteren. You’ll find a contact address on this page https://www.krigsseilerregisteret.no/en Worth a try. They also collect documen...

Re: HMS Stoke

Your last sentence really hit home for me. When my daughter, many years ago, asked about her grandfather’s (my father’s) war service, I realized I knew next to nothing. I decided I owed it to my children to find out more. It would have been so much easier if I had asked him about it while he was sti...

Re: Question to forum members

Very glad to hear that! We had quite an attack on the forum yesterday but I was able to stop it fairly quickly. Hopefully, we’ll be left alone for a while. But the price we pay is that anyone who wants to register now has to be approved by me, and I don’t like that feature, but it had to be done, at...

Re: Question to forum members

:D I’m glad you’re neglected in this case. Looks like our forum has been attacked today, so much so that I’ve had to turn on the “registration approval” setting again. This means that anyone who wants to register has to be approved by me before they can register and post. I’ve already deleted around...

:evil: Thanks so much, Hugh. I assume you’ve deleted it already, but can you remember the sender? Did anyone else receive spam pm’s? We now have 10 new registrations to the forum in the last two days; this is an unusually high number. None of these 10 have posted messages to the forum itself. In add...

Looks like everything is ok then, but please let me know if you do get private spam messages.
