The blue book celebrating Little Norway came with a wrapper... which is almost never seen today.

There were several songbooks printed in Toronto for the Norwegian armed forces.

First, there is a song book for former members of the Scouts who were in the armed forces.

Then, there is a 1940 dated songbook and also a later songbook.

There was a gala for the RNAF police held at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto on March of 1943.

Here are pictures of:

Neat, huh?

I am not certain that this is a Little Norway item or an item that was used by the Norway Diplomatic people, but I do know that this was made by the Toronto jeweler, Lackie, who also made pins and medals.

This just arrived from Norway into the frigid Great White North.

While the main Little Norway training camp was located at the edge of Toronto, they did have a camp cum leisure area located in the Muskokas on Vermilion Bay. This camp, sometimes known as Vesle Skaugum, is pictured on this postcard that I scored off fleabay.

Interesting and very cheap.
