About Strømme Leander Rosvold

A soldier during WW1. Strømme was a fisherman. He died in his mid-40's from gangrene in his leg. He got a cut (possibly from a fish hook) in his leg that got infected. He refused to see a doctor.

Strømme and his siblings took the name "Rosvold" after their homestead in Målselv, Troms (otherwise, following naming traditions, his name would have been Strømme Oleson - son of Ole). Note that the correct spelling is Rosvold with a "d" (not Rosvoll).

(Year of death approx. 1917-1918. There's a photo of him where he writes at the back that he's now an old man at 39. He died a couple years after this photo was taken.)
