I have just photographed the entire transcribed notes of the Courts Martial of Hauptmann Wolfgang Blell, which is held at the British National Archive, WO 311/51.

It was held at the Victoria Hotel at Lillehammer between the 9-11 July 1945. Blell was accused of having shot and killed a Russian POW in June 45. He was found guilty and sentenced to death, there was an appeal in september and Blell was reprieved the night before the sentence was due to be carried out.
