A smuggling background
Olav Sorensen grew up in Great Britain, immersed in the countryside culture, participating in pastimes such as hunting, shooting, and fishing. His grandfather was a Danish trawlerman, descending from Hvide Sande, Denmark. During the Second World War, Olav’s grandfather operated covertly for the UK government, bravely smuggling members of the armed forces to and from Europe hidden in his trawler. After the war Olav’s grandfather settled in England where he met his English born wife.
