Odd Wullum

Post  Bob Pearson on Fri 16 Jan 2009 - 22:32

Does anyone have information on a Norwegian called Odd Wullum? I have just been sent a picture of his memorial stone. However, aside from the name the inscription is unreadable. There is a mention of an Odd Wullum during Henry Rinnan's trial where Wullum is referred to as a 'fugitive'. However, the info provided is very basic.

Firstly, was Wullum connected to Rinnan's gang or is there some other explanation? Secondly, does anyone know where Odd Wullum was from April 19th 1940 until June 7th?

As always, thanks in advance for any assistance.

Participated in the 1940 war moving equipment from norwegian army depots to prevent German capture.
Later part of the fighting in the Aandalsnes area.
Involved in establishing the resistance movement in Trøndelag. Arrested October 10th 1943 and questioned under torture.
Sentenced to death, but made an escape 15th November 1943. Tried to escape to Sweden but only three days later he was betrayed and was killed. This happened at Gjevingaasen/Laanke not far from Vaernes airport. He is buried in Trondheim.

Did Odd Wullum ever travel over to the UK and train with SOE or was he locally trained by the resistance in Norway?
