138_gbj_-_072.jpgTrondheim - SS Mormacsea738 viewsWith $4.5 million in Swedish gold secretly stashed in its hold, a neutral American freighter was left up its own devices when it found itself dangerously trapped in a Norwegian port just as the full might of Hitler’s Nazi hoards invaded and occupied Norway
Captain William McHaIe, master of the SS Mormacsea, was awakened by the noise of several planes circling his freighter as she lay at dockside in Trondheim, Norway. It was 4:45 am on 9 April 1940. Rushing to the bridge, McHale encountered his Chief Mate, Al McKinnon, who explained that something strange was going on and that a damaged German cruiser, the Admiral Hipper, had just entered the harbor. Her captain requested permission to pull along side the Mormacsea.
The German captain boarded the American freighter and explained to Capt. McHale that 2000 Nazi troops now occupied the port of Trondheim and the surrounding countryside. He stated that Germany had no quarrel with the US or their merchant fleet. These occupation forces were there only to protect the Norwegians against a British attack that was anticipated in the next few hours.
