The 2 vessels attacked September 7. 1940 was the Norwegian steamer "Tellus" (not damaged) and the Danish steamer "Sejrĝ". The Sejrĝ was slightly damaged, but abandoned by the crew. When the German auxiliary "Schiff-47" arrived, the crew were forced back on to the ship, and the vessel saved from drifting ashore.
In addition a herring factory in Florĝ was attacked.
During the attack at Trondheim September 22. 1940 were the auxiliary guardvessel NT-13 Adler, a Norwegian steamer (name?) and ships in the harbour bombed. No damages to the vessels.
