Operation Brandy

This was a British special forces raid on German shipping in the harbour of FlorÝ in the western part of German-occupied Norway (14/15 February 1943).

Undertaken by seven men of Nos 10 (Inter-Allied) and 12 Commandos, this was an essentially Norwegian-implemented operation with Lieutenant Rommetveldt in command. The commandos were carried in two Norwegian-manned motor torpedo boats, which torpedoed two German ships and laid mines which claimed another German ship. One of the motor torpedo boats ran aground and had to be abandoned.
