Sigurd Hund

Rogaland,Norway

The steamer Treue was built by Scheepswerft Wilmink & Company NV in Holland, and was launched in 1925. She was four years later sold to the Norwegian company Nordlandske Dampskibsselskab AS and renamed to Sulitjelma. In 1935 she was sold to Nordlandslinjen AS, and got her last name as Sigurd Hund. Under a journey from Herøya to Bergen she hit ground at Rauna 18.July 1940, and had to be beached nearby. The cargo was slavaged the same evening with help from local boats that came to assist. She was taken in tow towards Sirevåg, but sank soon after. The battered remains of her rest today on a depth of 20 to 26 meter outside Sirevåg, south of Ognabukta.
