[North Marker Plaque :]
In World War II, 1,100 Norwegian ships served the Allied cause by hauling supplies between U.S. ports and the war theaters abroad. A sizeable part of the Allied forces were supplied by ships flying the Norwegian flag. More than 30,000 sailors and naval gunners manned the ships. Many of them looked to New York, the principal port of call, as their home port during the war. The losses were heavy, 570 ships and 4,000 sailors.
