803 Squadron Fleet Air Arm 8G 25.04 1940
This Skua, operating from HMS "Glorious" was hit by German flak in an dawn raid on enemy shipping and seaplane base at Trondheim. They made a rough landing into Sørfjorden, a side arm of Stjørnfjorden. The pilot Lt.Alexander Beaufort Fraser-Harris and L/A George S Russel were rescued by the locals. They were given civilian clothes, and soon set off in direction to the British Expeditionary Force in Namsos. After a long trek through German controlled area they reached Namsos, and were shipped safely home on HMS "Calcutta".
