Our Legacy and Heroes

Commodore (retired) Hans Helseth of the Royal Norwegian Navy has been Senior Mentor at our Higher Command Studies Course (HCSC) for the last two years. In a discussion with a Latvian student of the current HCSC, Colonel Ilmārs Lejiņš, Commodore Helseth mentioned that his grandfather had received a Latvian medal for saving a ship’s crew, sometime before the Second World War. This led to a road of many discoveries for both our Latvian colleagues and for Commodore Helseth himself. It turned out that his grandfather had received the Order of the Three Stars from the President of Latvia and that a dramatic rescue action had taken place, none of which anyone knew much about. To find out what exactly happened and why the Senior Mentor’s grandfather received the highest state award in Latvia, I invited Commodore Helseth to share his memories and knowledge.
