  • Participant in WW2
  • No medals registered in this tab does not necessarily mean that the seafarer was not awarded medals. Registering information from new and different historical sources documenting the seafarer’s history, is an ongoing and extensive work, and there exists no complete register over all the medals awarded. Information about medals will therefore be registered gradually and will be based on different sources.
