• BOAC’s Scandinavian Service (1939-45), which operated between the UK and neutral Sweden, provided the means by which a large number of Allied clandestine operations and activities could be carried out during the Second World War. • Moreover, its transport of thousands of tons of Swedish-manufactured steel ball-bearings to Britain during the same period, was vital for its aircraft manufacturing industry.
