Fan-Faroe, the Faroe Islands Force Magazine

    I am searching for information about one of the Magazines that the British army published during the occupation of the Faroe Islands.

    The magazine is called "Fan-Faroe, The Faroe Islands Force Magazine"
    I don't know when No. 1 was issued, but:
    No. 2 in May 1942
    No. 3 in November 1942
    No. 4 on Ólavsøka 1943 (this means late July 1943, as Ólavsøka is on 28th-29th of July every year)
    No. 5 at Christmas 1943
    The editorial of the 5th issue states that it brings Volume I to closure and that "Volume II will commence a new era and the magazine will be conducted on rather different lines."

    I've been trying to search on the Internet, but I can't find anything.
    I've been reading the magazines, and am about to write a paper on the (university assignment) - any help I can get, any ideas on where or how to search further is most welcome.

    I read you celebrate St Olaf very well every year.

    Welcome to the forum RadarArray.

    He has not been back for a while so better to contact him with a PM.

    Let us know the result.

    I would be interested as I have an RAAF lad buried there after a crash on 9th November 1942.

    I am looking for photos of the headstones from Midvaag cemetery for my project and possibly some further details on the crash.

    Cheers

    Thank you, retired Canadian Air Force. My father picked up the first two issues and I have them now.
