HMS Trumpeter

Aircralf from the escort Carrier attacking a U-Boat supply ship in a fjord in Norway. At about 7 o'clock in the photo is an old Norwegian coastal defence Battleship, though of as an unworthwhile target as she is seen as unable to involve herself in the war in anyway. This is one of the last shots of any action in this part of the world, notes with the photo tell me that all allied action was stopped soon after, and the Germans surrendered within hours of this photo being snapped.
