      Two and a half companies from GJR 138 were airlifted in to Narvik, during the Norwegian campiagn in 1940 they were followed by two composite companies from GJR 137 who dropped by parachute.

      Must be one of the GJR FSJ !!

          Narvik would be on left, Edelweiss on right.

            He could also have been a FJ who transferred to the GJ.

            Or we can't see the Narvik shield. Or Narvik GJ before the shield was awarded. Many possibilities.
