Jeg har sakset følgende ut fra denne linken om den norske handelsfåten 1939-1945[url="http://www.warsailors.com/materials/norfleetb2.html#Anchor-31774>Lenke'M/T Borgny * Fred. Olsen & Co., Oslo 3015 gtBuilt in Aalborg, Denmark in 1929. This was Fred. Olsen's first tanker. Captain Reidar Solbakke. In Sweden at the outbreak of war in Norway, returned to Norway. Seized by the Germans in 1940. Tragically, this ship was sunk by two torpedoes from the Norwegian MTB 56 (Sub-Lt Danielsen) on October 4-1941 in Korsfjord, Norway (the MTB had been towed out from Scapa Flow to a point 120 nautical miles off the Norwegian coast by the Norwegian torpedo boat Draug). Borgny was on a voyage from Son to Trondheim with a cargo of aviation fuel, escorted by M1101 and V5505/Seeteufel. 14 Norwegians were killed, 13 people (some badly burnt) were rescued by the German escort. See also my page Ships in Sweden for information on all the Norwegian ships in Sweden.Related link: The names of those who died
