At 11 p.m. on 10th April, 1940, the day after the Germans had marched into Denmark; Lieutenant-Colonel T. B. W. Sandall RM was informed that he had been appointed to command a force of Royal Marines which was to proceed to the Faroes immediately.
Allied troops landed at the Faroe Islands, a constituent country of Denmark.
The ill-equipped British 24th Brigade landed at Harstat, Norway 37 miles north of Narvik. Meanwhile, at Namsos, the reserve unit 148th Territorial Brigade boarded cruisers HMS Carlisle and HMS Curacoa for Trondheim, without their anti-aircraft weapons due to lack of space.
Royal Marines were replaced by soldiers of the Lovat Scouts, a Scottish Regiment. In 1942, they were replaced by the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles). From 1944, the British garrison was considerably reduced.BBC - WW2 People's War - A Wireless Operator in the Faroe Islands
