|Notes on event|
On 19 January 1940 the neutral Telnes (Master Ingvald Berg Thomassen) was presumably torpedoed and sunk by U-55 northwest of the Orkneys. More details about the incident are not available because the ship was lost with all hands and the U-boat was also sunk a few days later.
|On board||We have details of 18 people who were on board.|
