    Does anyone know Before the Raid (1943)?

    A Crown Film Unit / Ministry of Information propaganda short written by Laurie Lee about a Norwegian village under occupation. Actually filmed in Portmahomack, Easter Ross in 1942. A lot of locals were used as extras, some of them having to be dressed in Nazi uniforms.

    An interesting BBC News item reports on a photo that has turned up of local lady in WRAF uniform posing with a German soldier

    Coincidentally I've just read the Guardian review of this - it came out in the same week as the film I watched last night! Sounds very good.
