Train from Trondheim to Jessheim, 1945

Train from Trondheim to Jessheim, 1945

Here we see the train that was used to carry No.129 Squadron from Trondheim on the west coast of Norway to Jessheim just to the north of Oslo on 15 July 1945. The trip took an impressive 19 hours!

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
