Sir William recalls a Commando operation on Vaagso Island, off Nordfjord. Stealth is the order of the day and as dawn breaks the BBC bellows out of their onboard speaker system. Not quite what was intended. Later in the day HMS Offa pursues a Dutch vessel. Even to this day, the outcome still troubles him.
