Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC News - Last hero of Telemark: The man who helped stop Hitler's A-bomb


    The last of a brave band who perhaps saved Europe from something very nasty indeed

  2. Saw the broadcast tonight and agree with your post ... the film " Heroes of Telemark " did not bear true justice to the bravery of the men involved including the ~500 Km escape to a neutral country .

    There was another , Norwegian , film made shortly after WW2 which included several of the actual participants in the teams .... linky ... Kampen om tungtvannet - YouTube .

    IIRC Joachim Ronnenberg was a guest speaker to UKSF for a number of years .

    Sadly he is the last survivor of a group of men with balls of steel .
     
  3. Good interview with Joachim Ronnenberg in the article, ending:

    Those who served in MNB(C) in Kosovo may remember the Norwegian "Camp Vemork" near Plementina, named in memory of this historic successful operation.
