 Misc. Convoy Voyages: 
For information on voyages made in between those mentioned here, please see the documents received from the National Archives of Norway and A. Hague's Voyage Record above. Please follow the convoy links provided for more details; the Commodore's notes are also available for some of them and several Norwegian ships took part.

Tore Jarl is listed as sailing in Convoy HN 19 from Norway to the U.K. in March-1940, bound for Blyth in ballast. She arrived her destination on March 19, having sailed from Bergen on the 13th, according to Page 1 of the archive documents. She subsequently remained in Blyth for several weeks.

In May that year, she made a voyage to Rouen and Brest, and a French visitor to my website has told me that she sailed from Brest on May 13-1940 in convoy 44 B under French escort, to Casablanca or Oran (the archive document gives departure Brest as May 14, with destination Greece; Casablanca and Oran are not mentioned). Torfinn Jarl was also in this convoy, which is available via the external link provided within the Voyage Record above. In June, we find her in Convoy HG 34 from Gibraltar to the U.K., cargo of manganesite for Portland, then London, where she arrived July 9.

The following month she's listed, along with Atle Jarl, in Convoy OA 194, which departed Methil on Aug. 5 and dispersed on the 9th. Her destination is not given, but from Page 1, we learn that she arrived Sydney, C.B. on Aug. 16, heading back to the U.K. on Sept. 10 with Convoy SC 4. Tore Jarl was bound for Preston with a cargo of lumber on that occasion and arrived there on Sept. 29. With Boreas, Ingerfire and Olaf Fostenes (Commodore Vessel), she later appears in Convoy OB 236, originating in Liverpool on Oct. 29, dispersed Nov. 2, Tore Jarl arriving Mont Luis on Nov. 10 (having started out from Milford Haven on Oct. 28). See the external links provided in the table above for more information on the OA and OB convoys mentioned here (though it'll be noticed that the listings are incomplete). She was scheduled for Convoy SC 13 from Sydney, C.B. to the U.K. on Nov. 22, but did not sail (she was still at Mont Luis on that date).

As can be seen when going back to Page 1, there's now a long gap in her voyages; According to A. Hague, she had arrived Halifax from Mont Luis in tow on Dec. 4-1940, having lost her rudder. She did not leave again until June 10-1941, when she's listed in Convoy HX 132, bound for Grimsby with a cargo of lumber, arriving that destination, via Loch Ewe and Methil, on July 3. With Benwood, Gallia, Gard, Lise, Thode Fagelund and Vav, she later joined Convoy OB 349, which originated in Liverpool on July 21 and dispersed Aug. 1 (link in table above). This time, she was bound for St. John, N.B., arriving there on Aug. 6 (having sailed from Loch Ewe July 23). From St. John, she subsequently proceeded to Hampton Roads, then on to Bathurst and Freetown. Her voyages in this period are shown on Page 2. Arnold Hague mentions her, along with Lynghaug (see also Montbretia) in Convoy SL 92, departing Freetown on Nov. 6 (link in Voyage Record), but she returned to port the next day, agreeing with the information found on the archive document. According to the external website that I've linked to at the end of this page, she was scheduled for Convoy SL 93 from Freetown on Nov. 19, but did not sail (her captain's name is given as O. Harfjord). She eventually left Freetown on Nov. 24, arriving St. Lucia on Dec. 13, and it looks like she made this voyage independently. On Dec. 17, she headed back to Hampton Roads, with arrival Dec. 28, later proceeding to Halifax on Jan. 5-1942 in order to join a convoy to the U.K.

With a cargo of palm nuts for Hull, we now find her in the slow Convoy SC 65 from Halifax on Jan. 17-1942. However, she returned to port, subsequently joining Convoy SC 67 on Jan. 30, but returned again (Heina was sunk - follow link for details). It looks like she may have been scheduled for Convoy SC 68 on Febr. 4 but finally got away on Febr. 10 with Convoy SC 69 and arrived Hull, via Loch Ewe, Methil and Middlesbrough, on March 7. She returned to Halifax again with Convoy ON 80*, departing Liverpool on March 27, arriving Halifax Apr. 15 (Tore Jarl had sailed from Loch Ewe, March 27). Novasli and Para are also listed. At the end of that month, she can be found in Convoy SC 82 back to the U.K., and in June she's listed, together with Borgfred, Kirsten B (joined from Halifax) and Rio Branco (returned), in the westbound North Atlantic Convoy ON 100*, which left Liverpool on June 2. No destination is given for Tore Jarl, but from Page 2, we learn that she arrived Sydney, C.B. on June 16, heading back to the U.K. on June 26 in the slow Convoy SC 89, cargo of wood pulp. She arrived Southampton, via various other ports, on July 15.

Together with with Dux, Evanger (Commodore Vessel), Nea, Norvarg, Rio Verde and Spero, she later joined the westbound Convoy ON 118*, originating in Liverpool on Aug. 1-1942. Tore Jarl arrived Halifax on Aug. 18 (she had started out from Milford Haven on July 31). With lumber for London, she was scheduled for Convoy SC 97 a few days later (in which Bronxville was sunk; follow the link for more info - Vice Commodore was in Bonneville), but did not sail, and was also cancelled from the next convoy, SC 98. According to Arnold Hague, she joined Convoy SC 100 on Sept. 12. Her subsequent voyages are shown on Page 3 and Page 4 - convoy information for some of these can be found in the Voyage Record above.

Skipping now to March-1943, when she's listed in Convoy KMS 12*, departing Clyde on March 31, arriving Bone Apr. 15 - her destination is not given, but according to Page 4 above, she arrived Bougie that day. She left Bougie again on Apr. 23 and arrived Algiers on the 24th, having sailed in Convoy MKS 12*. On Apr. 28, she left Algiers for Philippeville, joining Convoy KMS 13* (which had sailed from Gibraltar on Apr. 26) and arrived her destination on Apr. 29.

She's said to have shot down an enemy aircraft while in Convoy KM 11(?) on the coast between Bougie and Philippeville on May 21-1943. This convoy designation (from "Nortraships flåte") does not make sense, but I'm not sure which convoy she was in. Gunners were Rolf Caspersen and Viktor Solberg, and 2nd mate E. Olifsen also took part in the defence against the attacker. The aircarft fell in the sea about 100 yards behind Tore Jarl, and it appears the pilots of the downed plane were picked up from the water by a corvette. At that time, she was on her way from Bougie to Bizerta, having left Bougie on May 20, arriving Bizerta May 22 (according to A. Hague).

Together with Bruse Jarl, she's said to have had the honour of being the first merchant ship to arrive Bizerta after the allied landings there.

In Sept.-1943, she made a voyage from Bizerta to Bougie with Convoy MKS 25 - scroll down to the second table on my page about this convoy. She had departed Bizerta on Sept. 20 and arrived her destination the next day. As can be seen, when going back to Page 4, she proceeded to Algiers a few days later, remaining there for a long time and also had a long stay in Gibraltar, before returning to the U.K. (convoy details in the table above). Page 5 shows another long stay in Sharpness at the beginning of 1944.

In March-1944, Tore Jarl is listed in Convoy OS 72/KMS 46, voyaging from Belfast to Taranto with general cargo in station 31 (A. Hague gives her cargo as 11 tons potatoes). This convoy left Liverpool on March 23 and split up on Apr. 5, the Gibraltar portion (KMS 46*, in which Tore Jarl took part) arriving there on Apr. 6, while the OS convoy continued to Freetown. Follow the link provided within the Voyage Record for more convoy details; Bosphorus (Commodore Vessel), Mathilda and Troubadour are also named. According to Page 5, Tore Jarl had sailed from Belfast Lough on March 24 (initially bound for Taranto), and from Gibraltar, she proceeded to Algiers and Philippeville, then on to Augusta and Naples. Convoy info for some of her subsequent voyages can be found in the table above.

In May that same year she's listed in Convoy MKS 50*, originating in Port Said on May 19, arriving Gibraltar May 31; Tore Jarl, however, was on a voyage from Augusta to Bizerta, where she arrived May 26, having left Augusta on May 24. Having made another voyage to Augusta and on to Taranto, she returned to Augusta, leaving on June 13, joining Convoy MKS 52*, which had started out from Port Said on June 8 and arrived Gibraltar June 20, but Tore Jarl's destination was again Bizerta, where she arrived June 15. Again, please see Page 5 for a listing of her subsequent voyages, with convoy information for some of them in the Voyage Record.

Her 1945 voyages start on Page 6 (as can be seen, she had had a long stay in Bizerta), while the rest are listed on Page 7. The latter document also shows that she went home to Norway in Oct.-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 in them (and escorts) are named in the section listing ships in all ON convoys. The MKS and KMS convoys will also be added, but for now, see ships in all MKS convoys and ships in all KMS convoys.

More info on the other Norwegian ships mentioned here is available via the alphabet index at the end of this page, or go to the Master Ship Index.


Tore Jarl was in for repairs and modernizing in Nov.-1945, completed in July 1946 (possibly in Haugesund? Again, see Page 7). Sold in Jan.-1950 to Nivaldi & Giacomini S.A.L., Transport Maritimi & Terresti, Genoa, Italy and renamed Valgardena, delivered on March 17. Sold again in 1953 to Ligure Veneta di Navigatione S.A., Genoa. Sold in 1956 to Captain Salvatore Lofaro, Naples, Italy. Broken up in Italy in 1972.

Back to Tore Jarl on the "Ships starting with T" page.

Other ships by this name: The company's first Tore Jarl (ex Narbonne?) was built in 1903, 1256 gt, purchased by Nordenfjeldske in 1911 - torpedoed and sunk by the German UC-49 on May-7-1917 southwest of Sumburgh Head on a voyage Tyne-Trondheim with a cargo of coal and general, as well as 27 passengers, 1 died. The survivors were taken to Lerwick by an English trawler. See also this thread on my Ship Forum. Nordenfjeldske also had a 3rd Tore Jarl, built 1956, 839 gt (later lengthened and became 969 gt). Sold several times between 1976 and 1989, and had the names George Z, North Star, North Sky; still in service as North Sky in 1999 (Roger Smith International, Takoradi).
