Arrived 3/8-1919. addition "not met" may deduce that it was not all been called, who managed to come up with S /S "Mercury", as the steamer departed from Copenhagen on 26 March. Furthermore trick it up for the Copenhagen office to keep track of everyone who had signed up - and get sent invitations to all, since the ship's departure time was finally known. There were so many privates and many officers who had signed up for the "Baltic Information Agency", but did not come away with S / S "Mercury" - and so the Danish authorities made a stop for more volunteers leaving for Estonia.
Note 1: KB Hansen, Sakskobing, writes: # 2 on the list, "Captain Richard Gustav Borgelin (10/2-1887 Herning). Company Commander" I knew as a child, when I lived just north of Kalvehave in the village Viemose in southern Zealand. Col. Borgelin, as all us boys called him, I thought, was a light that had fled by the "Red Army" attack on Latvia and Denmark during the second World War II. There in the late 50s, he was a teacher at a holiday camp in Kalvehave just east of Møn Bridge, a colony owned by the City of Copenhagen? I mean, he died until the late 60s, early 70s. To Colonel Borgelin was easy, I thought until a few years ago when I was in Latvia on a weekend. At a hotel in Cesis (owned by Danes), I sat one evening and spoke with Wizard (Dane) and mentioned that I had known Borgelin as a child, and as I mentioned the name.
Great was his surprise, and he said that Borgelin was not easy, but Dane from Herning (Swedish descent) and had been with the abovementioned force in Latvia during the first World War, but had been there and gone into the Latvian army, where he had been colonel. In Latvia Borgelin a hero! He had the highest Latvian order "Bear Killer Order" for his heroism. I have seen the order in the middle of the 1950s and his sabers (3 pcs), for them we should boys the look. Borgelin had been in the cavalry, and he was also bowlegged, as he sat on a horse an entire lifetime. cfr. interview with Wizard: The river Dauga stands Latvia from Lithuania, in the eastern part of its course and upriver is a town called Daugapils. One half is on the Latvian side and the other half on the lithauiske page. During the struggle to throw the Russians out of first World War was the rusiske forces on the south side and fired the Latvian forces on the north side. Latvians had an agreement with the Lithuanians on, none of the parties had to cross the river. Latvians had thus not able to remove the Russians from the south bank, and they could not help the Lithuanians, who was too far away with their forces. Borgelin got the brilliant idea to send the Danish forces, which is no agreement had with the Lithuanians, over and throw the Russians out. As I said then done, Borgelin threw the traps out, hoisted the Danish flag in the town square, held the city until the Lithuanians came to present a few days later, and then pulled Borgelin again back to the north side of the river. This episode would cause that he was "Bear Killer Order".
