[#8506] Major Ringdal

Recommended Posts

Gjest Michelle Matthews

My mother remembers a Major Ringdal who used to stay in her father's house in Hampstead during the war when he was in London. She doesn't know what he was doing in England, he never spoke about it. His first name may have been Paul, he was probably in his 40s at that time. We think he had something to do with either the Shetland Gang or the Peterhead Base.We know that he was a widower, and his wife had been a pianist. Also, he was a member of the Catholic Apostolic Church, and whilst in London attended the church in Gordon Square where my grandfather (A.E. Capadose) was the priest.Does anyone have any information about him, or someone who might fit his description?

Helo Michelle, Major Ringdal could have been just anybody. Are you sure 'Ringdal' was his real name. It most probably was not. Try the 'Resistance Museum'.They have a website: www.nhm.mil.no Write or call. Good luck. This is difficult, but try. K.P.
