 Some Convoy Voyages: 
Please note that only a few of her voyages are mentioned here. For information on voyages made in between those discussed below, please see the documents received from the Norwegian archives and A. Hague's Voyage Record above. Follow the convoy links provided for more details; the Commodore's narrative and/or notes are also available for most of them, and several Norwegian ships took part.

Høegh Scout is listed in Convoy HGF 19 from Gibraltar in Febr.-1940, bound for Liverpool with gasoline and gas oil in station 23 (it'll be noticed, when following the link, that she's mentioned in the Vice Commodore's notes). At the external website that I've linked to at the end of this page, she's listed in Convoy OB 102, which left Liverpool on March 2 and dispersed on the 6th. Her destination is given as Aruba, general cargo, station 11. However, she probably did not sail in this convoy, because she shows up again a few days later, with the same cargo and destination, in Convoy OB 104, leaving Liverpool on March 5, dispersed March 8 (ref. link in Voyage Record).

A French visitor to my website has told me that Høegh Scout was in Oran when Norway was invaded on Apr. 9-1940. He adds that she left Oran that same day in Convoy 19 RS under French escort, and was at Brest on Apr. 16. I'm not sure about this convoy designation; there was a Convoy 19 RS, but this was a Freetown bound convoy from July-1944. However, there was a Convoy 19 R (external link), which did indeed leave Oran on Apr. 9-1940. This convoy joined up with Convoy 86 KS from Casablanca on Apr. 10 (also external link), which arrived Brest on the 16th, and as can be seen, Høegh Scout is named among the ships taking part (as is Nea). It looks like the list for this latter convoy actually includes the 19 R ships as well, so Høegh Scout could have started out in Convoy 19 R, even though she's not named (the listing may be incomplete), but note that Oran and Brest are not mentioned on Page 1 of the documents received from the Norwegian archives. In fact, A. Hague says that she was detached from 86 KS on Apr. 16 (having joined the convoy at sea on the 10th), arriving Barry Roads on the 18th (see Voyage Record above). Comparing this with the archive document, we see that she passed Barry Island on Apr. 18 and arrived Avonmouth Apr. 20, having started out from Aruba on March 25.

A few days later, we find her, together with Svein Jarl, in Convoy OB 135, which originated in Liverpool on Apr. 24 and joined up with OA 135 on the 26th, the combined convoy forming Convoy OG 27. This was a Gibraltar bound convoy, which arrived there on May 3, but Høegh Scout was bound for Trinidad and Curacao, and left the convoy on Apr. 29 to proceed to her destination. OG 27 will be added to an individual page in my Convoy section, but in the meantime, the ships sailing in it are named on the page listing ships in all OG convoys. Her arrival Trinidad is not given on the archive document, but she arrived Curacao on May 15, proceeding to Bermuda 3 days later. She's now listed among the ships in the Bermuda portion of Convoy HX 45 on May 23, bound for Avonmouth, according to the Advance Sailing Telegram (the A 1 form gives her destination as Falmouth, cargo of gasoline). Going back to Page 1, we see that she arrived Avonmouth, via Milford Haven, on June 9. She later proceeded to Cardiff, and as can be seen she remained there for quite some time. In July she shows up, with destination Abadan, in Convoy OB 183, originating in Liverpool on July 13, dispersed July 17, Høegh Scout arriving Abadan on Sept. 2 (via Table Bay Aug. 10), having started out from Milford Haven on July 12. Iron Baron and Sandanger are also listed (link in table above). With a cargo of oil, Høegh Scout returned to the U.K. in Convoy SL 52F, leaving Freetown on Oct. 22, bound for Liverpool, where she's said to have arrived Nov. 16, according to the archive document (not sure if this is a misprint? The convoy arrived Liverpool on Nov. 10). The Norwegian O. A. Knudsen is also named (again, see the link provided in the table above). Høegh Scout is also included, along with Dagfred, Hallfried, Heranger, Salamis, Solfonn and Varangberg (returned), in Convoy OB 249, leaving Liverpool on Nov. 24, dispersed 4 days later, Høegh Scout arriving Cape Town on Dec. 25, Abadan on Jan. 20-1941.

On March 13-1941, she's listed in Convoy SL 68 from Freetown. She arrived Bermuda on March 31, the convoy having been dipsersed on March 21 (SL 68 had been attacked, losing several ships; again, see the link provided in the Voyage Record above - see also Strix, which was involved in a collision when in this convoy. Fernbank and Stiklestad are also listed). From Bermuda, she proceeded to Halifax the next day and from there, she joined Convoy HX 120 on Apr. 10, bound for Manchester. According to Page 1, she arrived Liverpool on Apr. 29, Stanlow on the 30th. Together with Gallia, Harpefjell and Thalatta, she's subsequently listed as bound for New York in Convoy OB 320, which left Liverpool on May 8 and dispersed on the 14th, Høegh Scout arriving New York on May 27, remaining there for almost a month, before proceeding to Halifax on June 23. On June 30 we find her in station 71 of Convoy HX 136 from Halifax, bound for Liverpool with gasoline (Kos XX is named among the escorts, see HX convoy escorts), returning with the westbound North Atlantic Convoy ON 2, which left Liverpool on July 27 and dispersed Aug. 8, Høegh Scout arriving New York on Aug. 12 (it looks like she had joined from Loch Ewe, see Page 2). She headed back to the U.K. again on Aug. 21 with Convoy HX 146, returning across the Atlantic in the middle of the following month with Convoy ON 17. She arrived New York on Oct. 5, the convoy having been dispersed on Sept. 29.

According to Arnold Hague, she now went back to the U.K. with Convoy HX 155*, departing Halifax on Oct. 16-1941, arriving Liverpool on the 31st. She subsequently joined the westbound Convoy ON 34, leaving Liverpool on Nov. 7 (Acanthus is named among the escorts). As will be seen when following the link, Høegh Scout is mentinoned in the Commodore's notes for Nov. 9, saying she was among several ships that were missing after the convoy had hove to in a gale that day. She arrived Halifax on Nov. 20, and on Nov. 27, we find her in Convoy HX 162 to the U.K., together with the Norwegian Astrell, Brant County, Katy, Bello, Sama, Beth (returned) and Skandinavia. Norvinn (Panamanian flag, Norwegian managers and therefore listed under the N's on this website) was also scheduled for this convoy but did not sail. Christmas that year was celebrated while in the westbound Convoy ON 48*, which left Liverpool on Dec. 19 and dispersed on the 31st, Høegh Scout arriving New York on Jan. 3-1942.

She headed back to the U.K. in Convoy HX 172 from Halifax on Jan. 26-1942, and going to Page 2 again we learn that she returned to the U.S. in Febr./March, having joined Convoy OS 20, from which Charles Racine was sunk, follow the link for details (Havkong, Jenny and Sandar are also named - link in table above). This was a Freetown bound convoy, originating in Liverpool on Febr. 22, but Høegh Scout had started out in Milford Haven the day before and stopped at Belfast Lough on the 22nd, leaving again the next day for Key West; arrival date is given as March 27 on the archive document. She proceeded to Mobile the next day; A. Hague indicates that she had run aground on March 13 and arrived Mobile in tow on Apr. 2, remaining there until July 21, when she sailed to Beaumont, with arrival July 23.

On Aug. 23 that same year, she's mentioned among the ships in Convoy HX 204 from Halifax (information is based on a diary); however, she had arrived Halifax that day from Cape Cod Bay, and it'll be noticed, when going back to Page 2, as well as Page 3, that there's no mention of her leaving Halifax again that same day (the author of the diary who saw her in port that day must have wrongly assumed that she too was destined for HX 204). Departure is given as Aug. 30, when she's listed in Convoy HX 205. Acanthus, Eglantine, Montbretia and Potentilla are named among the escorts. Høegh Scout arrived Avonmouth, via Belfast Lough and Barry Roads, on Sept. 13, subsequently returning with Convoy ON 131*, bound for New York (convoy originated in Liverpool Sept. 18 and arrived New York Oct. 4).

Further 1942 voyages and some 1943 voyages are shown on Page 3, while her 1944 voyages start on Page 4; convoy information for some of them can be found in the table above.

In July-1944, she's listed in Convoy HX 298 from New York to the U.K., again in the company of several other Norwegian ships. Early the following month, she's named in the westbound Convoy ON 247*, which originated in Liverpool on Aug. 2 and arrived New York on the 15th. Again, please see Page 4, as well as Page 5 and Page 6 for information on the rest of her voyages. As will be seen (Page 5), she got to go home to Norway in Dec.-1945.

* The ON convoys will be added to individual pages in my Convoys section in due course, along with further details on each. In the meantime, the ships sailing them (and escorts) are named in the section listing ships in all ON convoys. The entire HX series will also be updated and completed, but for now, please see ships in all HX convoys for the names of other ships sailing in HX 155, mentioned in the above narrative. Escorts are named on this page.

For more information on all the other Norwegian ships mentioned on this page, please see the alphabet index below, or go to the Master Ship Index.


Sold in July-1953, along with Skibs A/S Arnstein to Harald Stange & Co. A/S, Norway and renamed Laila Stange. Sold in 1958 to Kydoniae Shipping Co. Ltd., Greece and renamed Georgios Manolakis. Sold in 1962 to Southold Cia. de Vapores S.A., Greece. Sold in 1964 to Motortank Co., Greece and renamed Leleta. Sold in 1965 to Elm Shipping Co.

While laid up at Flushing in 1966 with incomplete repairs she was sold by auction to the Spanish shipbreakers Revaloracion de Materiales S.A., then registered in the ownership of N.V. Redwijs (under Dutch flag) and renamed Leta for the voyage in tow to Bilbao, arriving there in Jan.-1967 to be broken up.

Back to Høegh Scout on the "Ships starting with H" page.

Leif Høegh later had another ship by this name. This was an LPG Carrier built in Kristiansand, Norway in 1968 as Rita for Finn Stephansen-Smith, 2994 gt. Purchased before completion by Leif Høegh & Co. and renamed Høegh Scout, completed in Dec. that year. Sold to Italy in June-1974, renamed Christina Montanari.
