See "dokumenter" for history of his life at sea. Amongst other histories worth notice, in 1943 he worked for the Army Transport near Australia but wanted to go to the US for a job there instead. While onboard "Sebastian Cermeno" as an officer on the way to the US, the ship was torpedoed and he was among the survivors that made it with the last lifeboat out. They were later rescued by Australian destroyer "Quickmatch".
No documentation of his engagements on foreign ships.
