Re: Two SAS lost Finland 1942

According to this Norwegian wiki page, they were actually shot in May 1944, on the 25th (Hans SkjŠrv°) and on the 26th (Thore Eugen Sentzen).

For some reason, they are not listed in the website, that has many names of SIS/SOE/SAS agents among other "special units" (like commandoes and paratroops).

A memorial commemorates Sentzen:

More details here:
Both men left Norway during the Lofoten raid in March 1941 to join the Allied side. Sentzen is said to have sailed with a fishing boat to Norway in 1942 to establish a radio station but it was bombed.
