Seafarers at War

Overview

When maritime nations go to war, it is their seafarers who are often exposed to great danger. Peaceful workplaces at sea become targets for attack.

When maritime nations go to war, it is their seafarers who are often exposed to great danger. Peaceful workplaces at sea become targets for attack.

The exhibition tells how the two World Wars in the 20th century affected the lives of the seafarers working out at sea, and society here at home on land. In both the First and Second World wars, Norwegian merchant ships and their crews were involved in war hostilities. The stories of the seafarer’s efforts during the First World War are, however, less well-known than the history of wartime sailors from the Second World War.

What was it like to be a sailor when the Great Powers went to war at sea? How did it feel to be attacked by mines, torpedoes or submarines? How were families and society on land impacted by a war along the coast and far out at sea? How did the families of seafarers experience war time?
