From Page 1 of the archive documents, we learn that Ogna was on her way from Buenos Aires to Santos when war broke out in Norway on Apr. 9-1940.

At the top of Page 2, departure date is given as Nov. 27 (1940); this should probably be Dec. 27. Her 1941 voyages also start on this document and continue on Page 3, which also shows her 1942 voyages as well as a few 1943 voyages. The rest are listed on Page 4. Some 1944 voyages can also be found on the latter page, while Page 5 has more, along with some 1945 voyages. Page 6 shows her voyages to Apr.-1946. As can be seen, she got to go home to Norway in the fall of 1945.


Renamed Ogna County in Jan.-1953. Renamed Ogna in 1961. Sold in June-1963 to N.A. Valmas, Athens (manager Lemos & Pateras Ltd, London), and renamed Marianna. Aground at Finsnesrenna, south of Tromsø on Nov. 21-1965 on a voyage from Archangel to Hartlepool with lumber. Refloated Dec. 5-1965. Found to be beyond economical repair in 1966 and sold to Norwegian breakers. Sailed from Bergen on Apr. 2-1966 for Kristiansand S for breaking up.

Back to Ogna on the "Ships starting with O" page.

This company later had another Ogna, delivered in Febr.-1974, built in Bergen, 19 173 gt. Sold in 1982 to Hong Kong, renamed Fjord Thistle. Sold to the Philippines in 1987, renamed Visayas Victory. Sailed as Panamanian Norsul Parana from 2000. Sold to owners in Nassau in 2004, renamed Linnet Arrow. Sold again in 2005 to new owners in Nassau, renamed Palua Pearl.
