TitleLetter from [Arthur Mason] Worthington, FRS, 5 Louisa Terrace, Exmouth, to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date21 July 1916
DescriptionRecalls their trip to Norway in 1906, when they saw from their boat a place 'of great industrial activity'. Notes that he cannot recall the name of the place, however, suspects that the Germans may have purchased the land for some 'apparently harmless industrial purpose' and are now using it as a base for torpedo boats withouth the knowledge of the Norwegian Government. Asks Mackenzie Davidson if he can remember any particulars about the exact location. Expresses his desire to make it known to the Admiralty if there are dangerous operations taking place.
