Elements of the 4. Brigade from the west of
Norway, came marching across the mountains to Valdres with orders to advance and retake
everything they could from the Germans. A patrol reported a that a German outpost was at
Kronborg bridge. Kp/IR 10, under the command of Capt. Sefland, drove towards Kronborg,
unloaded and began advancing through the woods along the road. At 1330 they encountered a
German patrol and the battle began with the command, "Fire, God damn it!"
