Major Ian Smith MC and Bar

Post  Bob Pearson on Tue 22 May 2012 - 23:06

Major Ian Smith of the commandos - possibly 12 Commando - operated in Norway spying on German shipping. He was sent there via a Norwegian MTB, probably on more than one occasion. I have no knowledge if this officer operated from an island or spied directly from a hidden, covert MTB. I would imagine the area was in and around Bergen and possibly south of Bergen. I have no dates, but I think it was early on in the war as Major Smith later worked with SBS and other commando units. The base for ops was the Shetlands.

Again, if anyone can throw light on the operations of this officer then please contact me

Kind regards
