To Gansfjord on the "Ships starting with G" page.
Manager: Kornelius Olsen, Stavanger
Built in Stavanger in 1913.
Arnold Hague has included Gansfjord in Convoy PK 107 from Pilottown to Key West in Sept.-1942 - see the external link provided below. She left Pilottown on Sept. 29 and arrived Key West on Oct. 2, later proceeding to Ceiba, where she arrived Oct. 8, according to Page 4.
In the Norwegian magazine "Krigsseileren", No. 1/1985 I found the names of 16 Norwegians who are buried at Pine Ridge Cemetery, Saranac Lake, NY. One of them was Rasmus Brakstad from Gansfjord, who died in Jan.-1943. Norwegian War Graves on my Memorials page has more information about this Norwegian memorial in Saranac Lake, with the names of others buried there.
