    Stuck in my wheelchair again due to a recurrence of an old back injury, I am doing a lot of reading at present.

    Buried in the latest copy of RADCOM, the magazine of the Radio Society of Great Britain, the organisation representing the Amateur Radio fraternity (another hobby of mine) is an intriguing paragraph or two about the possibility of some undisturbed WW II communications bunkers on the Swedish / Norwegian border.....excerpt follows:

    ".....(Swedish Radio Amateur) had just finished interviewing an 86 year-old man who was involved in the passing of messages from Sweden & Norway to the OSS and SOE during WW II.......(Name) is involved with a group who are searching for the old bunkers that were built by the Swedish / Norwegian resistance during WW II and were supplied with equipment by the OSS and SOE. This equipment was parachuted in by the British & American Air Force. Apparently these bunkers are still there on the Norway / Sweden borders and it is believed they have remained untouched since the end of the war. It is possible that much of the radio equipment may still be sealed inside them. (Name) and the group will be searching some of them out in the summer of 2013; any other time of year is not feasible that far North and that high up......"

    I can't tell you how intriguing this prospect is and how fed up I am to be less than fit enough to go and get involved!!!!

    I wonder if any of our international readers have any knowledge or other information on the topic???

    I think the term "bunker" in this context must be on the far end of the definition :-) If this was a place used by the Norwegian resistance (Not Swedish, since they didn't have one on account of them not being a part of the war), it would more than likely be a very makeshift bunker dug into the earth or made from stacked stones or similar. Also, the resistance often moved the radio transmiters around to avoid radio tracking etc. But, by all means, there's more than likely undiscovered remains from WW2 both from the resistance and the German side in the more remote parts of northern norway.

    Sounds similar to our auxiliary units from WW2
