"On Saturday, December 27th, a small scale raid, mainly against enemy shipping, was carried out on the Norwegian coast by a combined force of the Navy, the Army and the Air Force. The operation was entirely successful. All our ships returned fit for immediate service.

"A word must be added about German fighting methods; if the property of loyal Norwegians at Maløy has suffered it is due not to the Allied forces, which did everything they could to save Norwegian property. But the Germans ruthlessly took advantage of their opportunity to shoot from private houses. They rushed into the houses, hid behind the curtains and shot at everything they saw."
