Mohr, Gunther Johan Hendrik Herman

Captain Mohr was only in command for one year in 1916. He was torpedoed with the Blommersdijk (I) and then resigned. Still tracing the rest of his career as he shows up in 1935 as sailing as a captain for the VNS (Holland Africa Line)

    His family name is actually ‘Gunther Mohr’.
    Johan Hendrik Herman Gunther Mohr was born in Oudenbosch on Febr. 6, 1883, he passed away in Bentveld Dec. 1, 1974, he married Amsterdam March 3, 1914 Maria Christina Hauber (1889-1914).

    He was a son of Johan Hendrik Herman Gunther Mohr and Amelia Zimmermann.

    Unfortunately I don’t have any details about his carreer.

    Kind regards,

    • Thank you for reading my blog

      and giving the information. It is very difficult to find anything of the old captains that goes beyond their work and sailing. So every little bit of information which helps to complete the jig-saw puzzle is very welcome.

      thank you and best regards

      Capt. Albert
