Description

Article in the Examiner newspaper, Launceston, from June 29, 1949, p. 7. The article includes a photograph of the recreated Viking ship the Ormen Friske, and a short report on her arrival in Stockholm for the World Sport Exhibition. The Swedish-built ship was based on the ninth-century Gokstad ship. The Ormen Friske was lost in a storm with all hands in 1950. Although the ship had no Australian connection the story was presumably considered to be of general public interest.
