Operation Musketoon 2

Post  Magnum on Fri 23 Sep 2011 - 15:42

Operasjon Muskedunder er navnet på en sabotasje aksjon utført av 12 kommandosoldater mot kraftstasjonen i Glomfjord for å sette aluminiums produksjonen i Meløy ut av spill. Det var en vellykket aksjon, men en katastrofe for 8 av de 12 soldatene som kom fra England, Canada og Norge. 7 soldater ble tatt til fange og senere skutt i Sachsenhausen konsentrasjonsleir. En nordmann døde av skadene han fikk under operasjonen og 4 greide å komme seg til Sverige.

Operation Musketoon. 12 brave commando soldiers raided Glomsfjord and stopped the production of aluminium for the German Nazi Regime in 1942. Only two survived the war.Seven of the 12 men were capured and killed in Germany.

Many thanks, Magnum.

Stephen Schofield wrote about the mission in 'Operation Musketoon' - available very cheaply via www.abebooks.co.uk

Dorothy Baden-Powell, in her book titled 'Operation Jupiter - SOE's Secret War in Norway' gives an overview of the operation although she neglects to address the operation by it's proper name. Her description comes from information given to her when she worked for Norwegian SOE, but care will be needed if anyone researches the topic if utlising her references.

Thanks again, Magnum

Bob
