falkenberg001.jpgNarvik - Sætermoen4702 viewsThe following photos are taken in the Narvik/ Setermoen area in Northern Norway summer/ autumn 1939. My late grandfather was an officer in the AAA (FlaK) on neutrality guard duty.
This one shows two soldiers manning a license-produced Colt machinegun M/29 (7,62mm/ .30 cal). These were used for low-level defence for the Bofors 40 mm guns.
