''Storstad'' The ''Pinguin'' headed north-eastwards towards the Sunda Strait to the shipping lanes between India and Australia. On 27 September the sea was calm enough to allow the spare seaplane to be assembled. Ernst-Felix Krüder and his navigation officer Leutnant Wilhelm Michaelson conceived and developed a plan to lay mines in six Australian and Tasmanian sea lanes but it would require two ships. On 7 October off Christmas Island a vessel crossing the raider's path was flagged down and ordered to stop with a 75 mm warning shot. The vessel stopped and surrendered. The vessel was identified as the Norwegian motor-tanker ''Storstad'' carrying a cargo of 12,000 tons of diesel oil and 500 tons of heavy fuel oil. She was on her way from British North Borneo to Melbourne. The ''Storstad'' was suitable for use as an auxiliary minelayer. CAPE OTWAY LIGHTSTATION Under a prize crew the ''Storstad'' was taken to a remote spot between Java and the north-west tip of Australia to be converted into an auxiliary minelayer. The ''Storstad'' was stripped and her after accommodation space was transformed into a mine deck with launching rails. One hundred and ten mines were transferred from the ''Pinguin'' in the motorboat that was taken from the ''Morviken''. 1,200 tons of the diesel oil was transferred from the ''Storstad'' to the ''Pinguin''. Norwegian Victims of Pinguin The '''Battle of North Borneo''' took place during the Second World War (World War II) between Allied (Allies of World War II) and Japanese forces. Part of the wider Borneo campaign (Borneo Campaign (1945)) of the Pacific War, it was fought between 10 June and 15 August 1945 in North Borneo (later known as Sabah). The battle involved a series of amphibious landings by Australian forces on various points on the mainland around Brunei Bay and upon islands situated around the bay. Japanese opposition to the landings was sporadic initially, although as the campaign progressed a number of considerable clashes occurred and both sides suffered relatively significant casualties. Ultimately, however, the Australians were successful in seizing control of the region, although to a large extent the strategic gains that possession of North Borneo provided the Allies with were ultimately negated by the sudden conclusion of the war in August 1945. Throughout much of World War II, British Malaya, North Borneo and Sarawak (Kingdom of Sarawak) were under '''Japanese occupation'''. On 18 January 1942, using small fishing boats, the Japanese landed at Sandakan, the seat of government of British North Borneo. On the morning of the 19 January, Governor Charles Robert Smith surrendered British North Borneo and was interned with other staff.
