Magne Sigurd


Magne Sigurd stranded on Gjyren south of Strømtangen 27.September 1956. The company Falken inspected, with their diver Badowski, the wreck after the accident. Mr. Badowski had also found the remains of the frigate Schleswig that same year. Under the inspection of Magne Sigurd he noticed that the wreck was stuck with her bow in the bottom on a depth of 15 meter. They salvaged some of the gear and parts of the cargo and abandoned the wreck where she was. The Norwegian "Filmavisen" also made their first underwater movie with 16 mm film on the wreck in 1956. The wreck rest today some 150 meters north northwest of the pole at Fjeset on a depth of 12 to 15 meter.
