Tales from an XU operative
Norwegian Secret Intelligence during WW II

On behalf of your Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you and your Guests to the next meeting of the Caledonian Society of Norway, which will take place on Thursday 25th October.

Wikipedia tells us that "XU (X for "unknown" and U for "undercover agent") was a clandestine intelligence organization working on behalf of Allied powers in occupied Norway during World War II. Though its work proved invaluable for operations against German operations in Norway, most of its operations, organization, etc., were kept secret until 1988".

Kåre Syltevik joins us to tell more about the organization and share some of his experiences as an XU operative.
