thank you for the e-mail!

It was an interesting story, in the Wikipedia-article.

I guess it's possibly this submarine from Østersund.

I read on the memorial, (for Paul Eddis), on your web-site, that it says:

'Go thy way thy son Liveth'.

Perhaps Liveth knows more about this story, (and my Danish relative), I was wondering.

But this information, (in the attachment), from MyHeritage, is now one houndred years old, this year.

So I understand if it's diffucult to find the relatives, this many years later.

But thanks very much for the reply!

Best regards,

Erik Ribsskog


I went to summer-school, in England, (Brighton and Weymouth), three summers, in the eighties.

And in the summer of 1989, I was going on a holiday to my earlier host-family, (Hudsons, Gordon Road, Shoreham-by-Sea).

And then I met Siri Rognli Olsen and Caroline/Vivian and one other young woman, from Trøndelag, on the ferry Braemar, (that went from Oslo to Harwich, at that time).

And they went each summer to Isle of Wight, on holiday, (if I'm not mistaking).

I think Caroline, (who changed her name from Vivian, if I understood it right), lives on Isle of Wight now.

Are these women well know on your island still, I was wondering.

If so, then please say hi to Caroline/Vivian, (who is a big fan of the band the Alarm), from me.

Thanks in advance for any reply!

Hello Erik

Paul Leathley Eddis was a Royal Naval officer serving in submarines during the First World War. I haven't fully researched his naval service but he died in the loss of the submarine "L24" in 1924

There is a report of a submarine "E13" being stranded off the Danish coast in 1915, and the crew being interned. I suspect that he was a member of this submarine's crew but I would need to do more research on this. There is a Wikipedia article about this subject at

If you search the Imperial War Museum "Lives of the First World War" website, you should be able to research the other men named in the Danish internees list

This may give you sufficent information to continue your research, but if not, let me know and I will see if I can find out more.

Paul Eddis and his brother Christopher Eddis were sons of the Reverend John Eddis, who was the vicar of Holy Trinity Church in Ryde, Isle of Wight for some years, but the family only stayed on the Isle of Wight for a short time.

Best wishes
Geoff Allan
Chairman, Isle of Wight Family History Society

I'm from Norway, but used to live, in the UK, from 2004 til 2014.

I'm doing some geneology, to do, with my Danish-born grandmothers relatives.

And I've found out, that her grand-aunt, (and friend), Anna Nyholm's first husband, (Magnus Julius Henry Davidsen), was a 'house-father', ('husfader'), see atatchment, for many British officers, during World War I.

(These British officers were 'interned' it seems.

So I guess they were some type of 'war-prisoners', (even if Denmark was neutral, during this war).

They may have been soldiers rescued from a sunken sub-marine, I guess).

I was wondering, if Captain Eddis's relatives, have some funny stories, about my relative, (their Danish housefather), Magnus Davidsen

Also, I was wondering why these British officers, where put into this accomodation.

Was it because they were some type of war-prisoners?

What was the story behind this house-share, I was wondering.

(Because I haven't been able to find anything about this, on Danish web-sites yet).

Thanks in advance for any reply!

Best regards,

Erik Ribsskog
