Norway had a trawler, D/S Honingsvaag (or Honningsvåg, I've seen it spelt both ways) which was built in 1940, 476 gt., Per Olsen. Does this vessel have anything to do with the German trawler, which was seized by the Norwegian navy and renamed, then used as patrol vessel? If so, what was the German name before it was seized?
Also, is it the same Honningsvaag which sank (or helped sink) the Norwegian fishing cutter Albion? (seized by the Germans).
