    "Sjøforklaringer fra 2. verdenskrig" says John Evensen drowned. "Sjøfolk i krig" says he died on Apr. 6-1941 and is buried outside Port Lyautey (cause not given, but a caption for a picture of his memorial stone says some Norwegian seamen were killed by native criminals while interned). He was 19 years old. For some reason he cannot be found at the Memorial for Seamen in Stavern, Norway which lists Norwegian seamen who died during the war.
