Norwegian Sailor's Headstone

Another headstone in Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol. Norwegian merchant seaman, Salve Lislevand who served on M/S Slemmestad. He became ill and died on November 22, 1943. The day he died, his ship was passing Gibraltar and was bound for Liverpool from Oran. Perhaps his body was taken ashore by a Pilot Boat and landed at Bristol?

Some very useful details can be found on a very informative website HERE.
