Hello all. please can you help me...This covers both mechant naval topics, and POW topics, so here goes...My father in law told me how he found out about his fathers war story. sadly after his dad had died, he had kept it a secret all his life. the only info he had was a few bits of paper from his fathers belongings. The papers tell of a Danish merchant seaman (Helge Toftum larsen) aged 24 years.he had served on the S.S. MIONEA and at some point had been interned in a concentration camp in Oran on the 10th September 1941. he was able to escape from the camp in a small sailing boat, and make his way to almeria Spain. he was taken from there to Gibraltar on the EMPIRE SEDGE on the 15th October 1941 as a distessed seaman. He was than put aboard the EMPIRE SNIPE bound for the UK. Can anyone shed any light on any of the events, ships etc...? many thanks Andrew.
