Heroes of Telemark expedition

Following in the footsteps of SOE's Gunnerside team, the charity Pilgrim Bandits is about to embark on a trek across Norway's Hardanger Plateau to mark the seventieth anniversary of the heavy water raid at Vemork.

The team of twelve will include injured veterans Ben Parkinson, James Wilson, Colin Hamilton and Paul Jacobs. According to an article in the Southern Daily Echo Joachim R√łnneberg, the last surviving member of the Gunnerside team, will be waiting to greet them when they finish.
