Warbuilt vessels

This section of the Norwegian Shipping History Society’s website is dedicated to information on war-built tonnage, i e vessels built as a result of wars.

The scope is international, but mainly Scandinavian-related.


So far the section will deal with naval vessels converted for commercial service, mainly of British, French, US and German origin.
