Surrey Police: Operation North Cape - 1981

In 1981 my father took part in a charity fund raiser for terminally ill and handicapped children. Through a joint project involving the UK, Norwegian and Swedish police and armed forces, their 5000 mile round trip was realized. They were to drive from Guildford in Surrey, UK to North Cape (Nordkapp) in Norway and home again. They were the first
non-Norwegians to do the trip during the winter for about 60 years.

We were recently sent pictures from a private collection belonging to one of the British policemen involved. Sadly he has since passed. This was the first time that we saw any of these pictures but I thought that they were share worthy and I truly hope that this story brings a smile to your face. Thanks for watching. :)
