Royal Air Force in Norway 1940

I am researching the Royal Air Force in Norway in 1940.

However I am having trouble researching for photos.

Does anyone know if the RAF took any ground equipment to Norway, or just relied on the Norweigans?

Incidentally, the IWM search for photos is very disorganised so does anyone know how to search the Royal Air Force in Norway in 1940, without getting photos thrown up about the North Africa or Polish AF?

The IWM has a weard way of allowing people to do some proper 'searching'.

I think that with most going down when the Glorious was sunk or left in situ when they left, such photos apart from the known ones are rare

The book Fledgling Eagles does have some photos of the RAF in Norway

Hello,
check https://www.raf.mod.uk/what-we-do/ou...ril-june-1940/
There is a mention of "R.A.F. lorries", but the most vehicles used by the Allies during the campaign were Norwegian (except French tanks).
