Soviet ambush on Luftwaffe trucks in Norway, 25 March 1944

Hello,

The translated version of the War Diary of the German Naval Staff Operation Division has two entries on an attack on a Luftwaffe truck column on 25 March 1944.

The most complete entry (on 30 March 1944) says:
"At 2325 hrs on 25 March between Vardoe and Vadsoe a lorry column of the Luftwaffe was surprisingly attacked by a Russian commando of 50-70 soldiers. Six men are missing, one is KIA. Presumably the evacuation of the Russians has been made by PT-boats."

The first entry on 26 March says that the six missing were captured and taken off.

Does someone have more details on this action ? I am interested in both sides, German and Russian. Thanks in advance

Hello Laurent,

it was a group from SOR (Northern Defence Area). They had landed from MTBs (PT-Boats). 6 POW and some documents were taken.
More detailed answer will be some days later when I'll back home.

Best regards,
Andrey
