Thanks. The VPN I use does not have Norway on the list. I will try and find it elsewhere.

If you are interested in something like this, a documentary has also been made about the history and escape of Jan Baalsrud as the film the 12th man is based on. The documentary goes into more detail and the entire route is repeated by 1 from the Norwegian Army and 1 from the Norwegian Navy. This one says that is available in the whole world but is worse with subtitles so you may have to learn Norwegian.

My late friend and I watched that over a year ago. It was a proper psychological thriller in the sense that we did wonder if the Nazis would catch him. We were rivetted from start to finish.

I am quite familiar with everything that unfolded in April 1940 and was several things but mostly that Norway is then as now as incompetent as it is possible to become. They were told early on that German warships were heading north and they did little. They also had a mobilization order for the army but it was sent out too late and by mail. There is a good TV series called Allied and Alone (Alliert og alene)  that covers the invasion from those who were to defend the country and it gives me chills I really feel sorry for the poor people who were in this.

Apart from Quisling; he was a treasonous dick.

Yes it is an absolutely incredible story and so one almost does not think it is true but it is. It is a pity that the documentary about this story is not available in English as it goes into more detail.

The area where I live first tractor. Think it's a Fordson? It was eventually used to run a sawmill, something it did for many years. Do not think it has survived. The owner was a farmer and forest owner who lived from 1895 to 1993.

This is not a vehicle related image but include it since this is the same person with one of his timber stacks sometime in the 50's. Everything was chopped, barked and stacked by hand. The only aid was a horse. And the timber was floated down the river in the spring / summer. Really hard work.

Helping my parents sort through some very old photos, one album from a distant family member had several photos of this car in various places.  None of them are particularly clear, I know nothing about cars of this era and couldn't even be sure which decade they're from, I'm guessing 1920s-1930s perhaps.

Can anyone ID the car?  I have no idea at all.
