I would like to know something, with detail if it is possible, about the uniforms of the Norwegian army during WW2.

Thanks

Pedro

Do you have anything at all?
If you don't then it's quite a shopping list and may take a little time to do.
I could send you some scans of insignia to get you going.
Regards

Thanks Wfrad

I´m more interested in jackets, greatcoats, caps and helmets than insignia. I have abook of Rosinolli that deals about rank badges.

Ok Pedro,
Rosignoli is good but he doesn’t cover Norway in his Naval and Marine Badges, he’s not alone either in that regard as the information on the Norwegian forces of WWII is quite limited when if comes to showing them in their own gear.
I would say that there’s been more interest in the Norwegian members of the SS, that aside I can send you a few images from the books of Funcken and Mollo.
Also you may want to get hold of a copy of Foreign legions of the Third Reich vol. 1 [pdf downloads are out there] which devotes around 60 pages to Norwegian organisations sympathetic the Third Reich. I could provide you with some scans from my copy if you are unable to find one.
If you want the images/scans send a private message with your email address, don't put your email onto the open forum for the world and his wife to see, unless you are short of Viagra!

Try this one for very early uniforms (May 1940 aggression by the German). It is a Rhul of 1935, but some soldiers were still dressed like that.
