I am researching my father's life at sea and am hoping somebody can help me find out about his time on SKUDD 4 and its factory ship, SKYTTEREN in 1930.
I have some fantastic photographs he took but would like to know:
More about the Tonsberg gunners, their company and their ships.
Would factory ships go inside the ice pack?
Where were the whale catchers laid up at the end of the season?
About the use of oil tankers to refuel factory ships & whalers in Antarctica (my father returned to Antarctica a year later on MV SPONDILUS, an oil tanker)

I found the following very helpful: http://lardex.net/TONSBERG/hvistendal/index.htm
I am a retired publisher and plan to publish a book about my father:
FORTY YEARS AT SEA: A VOYAGE WITH MY FATHER.
I hope you will excuse my use of English and will be able to help me.
