Parade in Oslo, 15 September 1945

Parade in Oslo, 15 September 1945

Here we see a parade in Oslo on 15 September 1945. This was probably held to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Battle of Britain, matching similar parades held across Britain. The same collection of photographs also includes two undated pictures of Spitfires flying over Oslo, possibly from the same event.

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
