British planes made couple of raids against Petsamo and its harbour Liinahamari (Barents Sea) in July 1941. Attacks were mainly against German troops in the area. Petsamo had nickelmine which was important for Germans. Petsamo was in Finland during WWII but were taken by Russia after the war.

Which was more important as a reason for Great Britain joining World War I?

The more important reason for Britain joining World War 1 was the Schlieffen Plan, that Germany had written up. The plan involved Germany attacking on two fronts; Russia and France. Almost immediately this would of set sparks off within the Triple Entente; Great Britain, Russia and France. The biggest fault of the plan was that Germany would have to go through Belgium to attack France. In 1839, Britain signed a treaty with France stating that they would help Belgium, who were neutral, if they were ever invaded. With Germany wanting to pass through Belgium, Britain were forced to declare war on Germany, something which the Germans had not expected at all. If Britain had left it, essentially Germany would of invaded both France and Belgium, and then would of been able to invade Britain from the South. Germany could of won World War One if Great Britain didn't attack.
