I would like to hear from anyone that has any information On the General Ruge. I have many photos taken on board during WWII of both the Norwegian and American armed guard crews that need to be identified; the American contingent were mostly signalmen - in this case the two 3 inch guns were manned entirely by Norwegian gun crews. The General Ruge served in the Pacific and was involved in several Invasions - including Iwo Jima and Okinawa. I will have the photos posted soon and will set up a site for viewing.
A couple of names I already have are: Odd Ohlman and Barbara Briggs (both Radio Officers) Anyone know of them? Thanks in advance for any information you might have.
