Oiling a Locomotive, Norway, 1945

Oiling a Locomotive, Norway, 1945

Here we see a locomotive being oiled during the long journey from Trondheim to Jessheim near Oslo. The train was being used to move No.129 Squadron to Oslo on 15 July 1945, a nineteen hour journey!

Many thanks to Pauline Law for allowing us to post these pictures, which came from her father Charles Rendell's collection. He served with the service echelons for No. 170 Squadron and then No.129 Squadron, and took part in the post-war liberation of Norway
