Appeal for local Norway information

Appeal for local Norway information

A PROJECT is tracing historic links between Scotland and Norway. And anyone with information or memories of Norwegians in this area during WWII is asked to get in touch.

Beverley Thom is co-ordinating the Norway Connections initiative and hopes to put together a book with her findings.

She said: “There is no definitive information on Norwegians’ time in Scotland.

“I have been fortunate to meet many wonderful people who have shared their families’ amazing and fascinating stories. The happy and the sad.

“I am gathering their personal stories, along with facts and photos, so that they are not lost in the mists of time. The book is aimed at recognising the connections (particularly Dumfries) between Scotland and Norway and ensuring that future generations have this information available.”

She is keen to hear from anyone with Scottish/Norwegian connections or who has pictures they could share and she added: “I would be delighted to hear from anyone with memories of Norwegians in WWII. A page, a paragraph or a chat – no matter how small or insignificant you think the information may be. It is all part of the jigsaw.”
