Thank you all for your kind words here.

I also picked up this collection attributed to a Norwegian youth member who also participated in a number of Hitler Youth events and has the miniature pins for them.

He was a member of the SS skijager battalion and was a police volunteer and has cufftitles from the NS youth group in Opland.

And, I have his post war prisoner uniform badge number (5148).

So, here is his little collection:

- prisoner badge number 5148
- HJ membership pin RZM 7/90
- Riksmote 8 1942 meeting badge
- HJ Leistung in silver RZM 1/101
- DJ Leistung RZM 1/120
- SS button RZM 63
- police cap badge L&WH
- NSUF arm patch
- Verneidrettsmerke
- cufftitle Frivilligenhjelp (police)
- cufftitle Germanische Landdients
- cufftitle Opland (NSUF)

A great and interesting collection.

John

Never seen almost half of this stuff before! Wow is an understatement... I'm wondering if these cuff titles aren't in our gallery can/should they be added?

Mike, I am not going to the MAX. I only go to the SOS nowadays.

I will have a bunch of armbands to post once I take pictures.

I picked up some 20 or so Norwegians on my last trip.

The Norwegian Nasjonal Samling government modeled many of their institutions after the German National Socialists.

Here we have two AT (Arbeidtjeneste) armbands. The AT was the equivalent of the German RAD.

One was for the AT itself, the other is a Press armband.

The predecessor to the NS was the Fredreland party, translated as Freedom Party. Most members of this party went onto and joined the NS when it was formed.

John,,, is there a reference book that has these items [and even more hopefully!] ..

Here are the Number 3 Hafrsfjord (and Rogaland, Agder and Telemark) and Number 4 Gulating (and Hordaland and Sogn and Fjordane).

Plus, one reference book, called the Nasjonal Samling Yearbook from 1944. There are other reference booklets, such as the ones re Norway in Sweden (Idrett for Norge), etc but few have come to my attention.

Derek Schei and Geir Brendan have put out a three (so far) volume of Norwegians volunteers on the German side (Norske krigsfrivillige pa tysk side), but these tend to focus on the insignia and medals given out or allowed by the German armed forces for Norwegian volunteers.

Here is a movie poster from a film made for the German high command and celebrating German victories up until the invasion of Norway in 1940.

For some reason, this film was never released and it was thought lost with only a few pictures from the film surviving the war. A full nitrate copy was found at auction in 2005 and the film has been released in Germany and Norway.

Here is a reference to this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kampf_um_Norwegen_%E2%80%93_Feldzug_1940

This is a poster for the film (thank you, Paul and Nate Hogle).
