For Phil Morgan

Phil, I apologize for the technical problems on the phone. Here is a link to the letter in question on my website (I believe this is the one you were referring to?): http://warsailors.com/norships/kvarstad.jpg It’s in the section of my website under the heading “Kvarstad ships and men” Thank you for...

Re: Confirmation that the Malta wreck is HMS Urge

That works - thanks so much! I realized later, I could probably have just googled it too, and saved you the trouble. I just wasn’t thinking.

Re: Confirmation that the Malta wreck is HMS Urge

Platon, I’d love to read about this, but the link goes to a 404 page; am I the only one?

I’ve noticed that too, Phil. Still, I myself am busy every day deleting spam attempts, up to 80 a day.

Re: BEST WISHES

Thank you so, so much, Phil, for thinking about us!

We have been extremely fortunate, have kept electricity throughout (unlike so many others in Houston), and are doing well.

Re: 2021

Thank you, and the same to all of you! 2020 was extremely rough, but in the middle of it all I continue to consider myself and my family among the most fortunate ones. Here’s hoping 2021 will be a better one for the world, and for this United States of America (though we’re off to a miserable start,...

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 ...

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

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...
