Model displayed in the Maritime Museum in Aabenraa

The unique maritime museum in Aabenraa has a beautiful model of the "Kaethe Jebsen" on display in the section with Jebsen related items.
During a visit in 2010, I used the opportunity to take a few photos of the model, - and here it is - - - -

Take note of the three pictures on the wall behind the model.
You will find the same pictures in this web site, due to the fact that the web master, - who is also the photographer -, donated these pictures to the museum.
During a visit I noted, that apparently the museum did not have pictures of those particular Jebsen ships, - but I had plenty and wanted to help making the collection up to date, - and now they are hanging there for all to enjoy - - - -
They show the three latest Jebsen ships, - "Carl Offersen", "Heinrich Jessen" and "Emma Jebsen".

I have never served on the "Kaethe Jebsen" , but my good friend , - the late Niels Johan Vendelbo, Radio Operator -, apparently had served on her, and photographed the life boat - - -
His wife was so kind to hand over Niels' photo collection to me after he died, and there is a lot of memories to dig into.
But first "Kaethe Jebsen's" life boat - -
 
 


Life boat No. 1 of M/S "Kaethe Jebsen".
(Photographed by Radio Officer Niels Johan Vendelbo, - apparently in Hong Kong in ---- ?)
