Memorial to the Shetland Bus
Memorial to the Shetland Bus
The Shetland Bus was the nickname of a clandestine special operations group that made a permanent link between Mainland Shetland in Scotland and German occupied Norway from 1941 until the surrender of Nazi Germany on 8 May 1945.
The unit was operated initially by a large number of small fishing boats and later augmented by three fast and well-armed submarine chasers Vigra, Hessa and Hitra.
