  • Father move both Lars and his older sister Hedi to the Oslo suburb of Kampen so he could work for his brother at the family produce distribution business.
  • Lars, not wanting to follow his father into the distribution business, applied to and was accepted into the Royal Norwegian Navel Academy in 1934.
  • An exceptional student, Lars was knows as something of a prankster, being a bit overconfident, and taking unnecessary risks at times.
  • At one point, Lars acquired the nickname "Röcke"( ROW-ka) by his classmates, but he's not telling why.
  • Lars graduated towards the middle of his class due to the number of demerits gained by getting back too late from dates.
  • Kommandørkaptein Johan Stang, commandant of the Royal Norwegian Navel Academy, thought enough of young Fendrik Tidsskrift that he arranged for him to command one of the three Motor Torpedo Boats (MTB) in the RNN shortly after graduation in 1938.
  • Fendrik Tidsskrift was known for his agressive tactics while in command of HNoMS Snøgg, once colliding with a German "fishing" vessel inside Norwegian territorial waters in an attempt to chase the German vessel out.
  • Fendrik Tidsskrift was relieve of command on August 21, 1939 and temporarily assigned as the Norwegian Navy Liaison Officer to the British Special Operations Group, Motor Boat Operations Research Department.
  • While working in MBORD, Lars was approached by Major Grand, who was asking if he knew a Marjorie Tidsskrift, who was showing up in reports of German efforts towards developing capabilties in the Black Arts. Surprised that his Mother was involved in activities that Group 17 was also interested in, Lars asked to join the Group.
