    Notes 
    • Carl Christian Skeel-Gerhardt was a cadet from the Military Academy at Kronborg and modelship-constructor. Carl Christian and his brother Axel traveled to Canada in 1927, (on the Ship Montcalm) Carl Christian to dig for gold, but with poor luck, however with plenty of exciting experiences. He stayed in Canada for approximately 10 years where he started a hobby of his of building model ships.

      Upon his return to Denmark in 1936 he opened a small shop in Copenhagen where he continued building model ships until his death in 1948. These ships are now scattered all over the world, but quite a few are still here in Denmark. In Hvirring Church - Nim Herred - Skanderborg County you can see a grand example of polar scientist Admiral Jens Munk`s ship "Enhjørningen" (The Unicorn) which is shown here on this page too. "Enhjørningen" was a Danish warship with 18 canons and three masts. It was built in 1605 and was extended in 1614. It was wrecked in Hudson Bay - Canada in 1620. The model ship was donated to Hvirring Church by a Mr. Hakon Lund and was put up in 1942-43. Also in Østbirk Church (Jutland), you can see one of Carl Christian`s many ships "Trefoldigheden"

      Buried in this church (Østbirk), Peder Skram (1503-81) Danish senator and naval hero, Skram`s audacity won for him the nickname of "Denmark`s daredevil", and he contributed perhaps more than any other Dane of his day to destroy the Hanseatic dominion of the Baltic. His humanity was equally remarkable; he often imperiled his life by preventing his crews from plundering.
