Dear Ed,

A NORWEGIAN film company is looking for veterans who took part in the ill-fated campaign of April, 1940, when British forces landed at Narvik in an attempt to push back the German invasion.

Ekko Films is putting together an historical documentary for TV detailing the events in Norway in the first year of the Second World War. Norwegian and German veterans are also being interviewed.

We would be pleased to hear from veterans who served with the Royal Navy, British Army or the RAF who took part in the Norway campaign. All interviews will be conducted with respect and sensitivity. Please email direct, or call me on: 01473-716380.
