The story of SOE’s supply route from Shetland to Norway during WW2
The story of the Shetland Bus is one of the most dramatic to emerge from the Second World War. It goes back to April 1940 when German forces attacked neutral Norway, this resulting in a stream of refugees heading west across the North Sea to the Shetland Islands, lying to the north of Scotland.
On 10 June 1940 Norway finally surrendered, and almost immediately Norwegians began training with units of the British armed forces, knowing full well that there were thousands of their servicemen, hiding within the country, who needed only arms and communications to become an effective underground army.
