Martin Linge & Johan (John) Rognes

Post  Bob Pearson on Sat 20 Jun 2009 - 17:11

Does anyone know the name of the boat (puffer?) that brought Martin Linge and John Rognes to the UK and did Rognes and Linge travel together? It would also be very useful to know from what port they sailed from.

I have references stating that Linge and Rognes travelled to the UK at the same time. Certainly, Rognes arrived in the UK on Feb 16th 1941, but I am not sure about Linge. I have checked Ragnar Ulstein's books without success as well as Warsailor, but of course I may well have missed some detail - please let me know if I am mistaken.

many thanks in advance

Bob

Linge & Rognes

Hei Alt for Norge,

og takk for informajon pa Linge.

I have just found out that Rognes was directly related to Operation Barbara and appears to have been the commanding officer for the op. It would be interesting to know if any of the 'Barbara' men knew or worked with Rognes prior to the operation - does anyone know anything on Rognes concerning Barbara and the men?

Thanks again,

Bob
