English: A Norwegian child being carried to an ambulance from HMS ONSLAUGHT at Gourock, 1 March 1945. She was one of over 500 civilians recued by the Royal Navy after hiding from the Germans on Sørøya island.
525 Norwegians, who had been hiding from German patrols in caves on the snow covered mountains of Sørøya island, Norway for three months, were rescued by four British destroyers of the Home Fleet who raced in broad daylight, 60 miles behind enemy lines and took them safely to a British port (Gourock). Picture shows a Norwegian child being carried to the ambulance (not in view) from on board HMS ONSLAUGHT.
