We are a group interested in local history, which is active in Norway (Bremangerland). In the final phase of the Second World War 8 Beaufighter aircraft of the 455th Sqdn. (Dallachy Strike Wing) on 8.3.1945 at 16.20 attacked six ships at Vindspollen (Bremangerland, Norway). I have found some information of the Danish ferry MS Heimdal on your site, maybe perhaps you can help me with further information:
Where the ships came from – destination of the ships?
Especially we would be interested to know more about what freight the Heimdal had on board. It is reported to us that 800 – 900 German soldiers were on board, other sources say that the ship had prisoners of war on board. It should also have given only one survivor of the attack.
We would be very happy if you could help us. If you are unable to do so, we would be grateful to refer you to an institution that could possibly help us.
Thank you very much for your interest!
Sincerely, from Norway
