Operation Harry (i)

This was a British naval undertaking by Admiral Sir Charles Forbes’s Home Fleet off the west coast of Norway (14/17 April 1940).

After the ‘Henry’ (i) delivery to Namsos of the 350 Royal Marines of its two main vessels, the light cruisers Glasgow and Sheffield, supported by the destroyers Afridi, Mashona, Matabele, Mohawk, Sikh and Somali, the warship force executed a patrol to the north and then returned to Bangsund, near Namsos Oerat, to recover its men, who were ferried out to the cruisers by the destroyers.
