Zitat aus Siri's "Norwegean Merchant Fleet":
Ringen took part in Operation Neptune in June-1944, arriving Normandie on June 8 and leaving again on June 13, according to "Nortraships flåte" by J. R Hegland. He says she made one more trip between June 22 and 27, then on her 3rd trip from London, at 06:30 on July 4, she struck a mine* off Isle of Wight. She had departed Southend on July 3, and for this voyage A. Hague has included her in Convoy ETC 26 (external link). In 3 1/2 minutes, she was gone.

Jürgen Rohwer (and several other sources) says Ringen was torpedoed and sunk by U-763 (Cordes) on July 5-1944. All my Norwegian sources insist it was a mine (Ringen did have degaussing, which had been on the whole time). Rohwer's info appears to be incorrect

U-763 kam in der Tat nicht in Frage, da ihr Angriff erst um 18.03 Uhr stattfand: da war die Ringen schon längst gesunken. Seit September 2013 stand der Angreifer daher zu Disposition.
