    The National Archives, Kew, HS 9/38/4:

    "He next joined the motorcutter "RUTLAND" and went to Honningsvaag in order to fish. The "RUTLAND" came into Honningsvaag Harbour on the 9.4.40."

    "ANGELL returned home immediately with the "RUTLAND" and stayed there for one week when he reported to the Military Authorities at Saetermoen and was with the Norwegian Forces in Tysfjord, North Norway, at the time of the capitulation in June, 1940. They were sent down to Saetermoen and from there to Tromsø where they were given instructions to return to their respective homes."

    "ANGELL worked on his father's farm again until the beginning of December, 1940, when he obtained employment as a mate on a ferry boat for cars in Kvenangen. He was employed by the owners but the Germans had the command on the ferry. He signed off in April, 1941, and went to Tromsø where he was employed by his brother-in-law, WENNBERG, a Norwegian, on board the motorcutter "SOLFJELD".

    This vessel had to search for mines laid by the British in the fjords but most of the time they only pretended [...] to be thus occupied and saw no mines.

    ANGELL signed off the "SOLFJELD" on the 26.6.41 and took employment as Skipper on board the motorcutter "FLINK", belonging to Sigurd WENNBERG, father of his brother-in-law.

    This boat was requisitioned by the Germans and took two German engineers along the coast of Finmark to different places, and, consequently, when they returned to Tromsø on the 26.8.41, ANGELL returned home as he was not anxious to go with them, was unable to speak any German and did not even know their names.

    In the beginning of January, 1942, he signed on the motorcutter "SVARLING" which covered the passenger route between Kvenangen and Lyngen. He signed off on the 20.4.42 and went home, working on his father's farm once more until he left for Sweden."

    "On the aforementioned date [20.9.42] they went by boat, using the ordinary route, so Skibotn, and from there, on the 23.12.42 they went by lorry to a place 4/5 mks. from the Finnish/Swedish border and so he passed through Finland and into Sweden."

    "Port of embarkation: Stockholm 17.2.43. Port of arrival: Leuchars 18.2.43 ex Aircraft G-AGDD."
