We have, therefore, at the outside only a month to spare. Moreover, the personal relations of the high naval figures involved were peculiar. Norway's second-largest city , saw 60 mm of rain fall in 6 hours, Friday afternoon and evening. They might promise Sweden that if she agreed to this in the far North, she would be let entirely alone in the rest of the country. Narvik, far away to the north, could be stormed or reduced at leisure and would all the while be protected.

The remains of the wooden church were discovered by archaeologists working for the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research and we spoke to Excavation Director Anna Petersen about the find. The land was a protruding sand area, and just a few metres to the west was water. With a route and intensity similar to Hilde, Ivar once again brought hurricane-force winds to central Norway. He was scornful of these belated fears and second thoughts. The chief limiting factor was the provision of the necessary bases and lines of communication on which the forces were to be maintained. We had seized the landing places at Namsos and Andalsnes and established forces ashore there; there were reliable reports that the Germans were improving the defences at Trondheim; and reports of our intention to make a direct landing at Trondheim had appeared in the press. Very little survives from the early Middle Ages, as the predominantly wooden settlement was destroyed several times by fire.

Now I want that people shall forget this. The operations in Central Norway which are now being undertaken are of an extremely hazardous nature, and we are confronted with serious difficulties. I also pondered a good deal upon the lessons of the Dardanelles. The advantages were so obvious that all could see them. It seemed that we could certainly bring forces and supplies to the scene across the open sea through Trondheim far quicker than the Germans could fight their way up the single road and railway line from Oslo, both of which might be cut behind them by bombs or parties dropped from the air. The second landing was at Andalsnes, about a hundred and fifty miles by road to the southwest of Trondheim.

. It could not take place for seven days, which would be devoted to careful preparation. But for this it was now too late. The second demibrigade of Chasseurs Alpins would not reach Trondheim until April 25, when it was hoped they would be able to disembark at the quays in Trondheim. Although Narvik was my pet, I threw myself with increasing confidence into this daring adventure, and was willing that the Fleet should risk the weak batteries at the entrance to the fiord, the possible minefields, and, most serious, the air. The French had offered two further light divisions.

Failure to take Narvik will be a major disaster, and will carry with it the control by Germany of the ore-field. They crashed on the airfield at Kirkwall.

He spoke and wrote to me repeatedly with vehemence, reminding me of the Dardanelles and how easily the Straits could have been forced if we had not been stopped by timid obstructionists.

The only recognised base in the area is Trondheim, which is in the hands of the enemy. The general position as it was viewed at this moment cannot be better stated than in a paper written by General Ismay on April 21. There he was to do everything possible to encourage the Norwegian Government in their resistance and explain the measures which the British Government were taking to assist them. Finally, the Chiefs of Staff pointed out that such an enveloping operation, as opposed to a direct assault, would release a large number of valuable units of the Fleet for operations in other areas, e. Admiral Forbes, although not fully convinced of its soundness, therefore addressed himself to the project in a more favourable mood. The enemy enjoyed complete air mastery, and we had neither antiaircraft guns nor any airfield from which protecting squadrons might operate. For example, we found this stunning crucifix, cast in bronze, just below the surface.
