    No Paul. The Norwegian government has refused to accept remains, negotiations last 2 years. Remains of volunteers are buried by means of VDK in Salla, on a military cemetery

    Ridiculous attitude from the norwegian government but at least they have a final resting place with their comrades.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Couldn't agree more Paul,
    Disgraceful behaviour from the Norwegian powers that be. Has anyone told them that the war is over?

    Norway has troubles with its past as we have in Denmark.

    Skijeger bataljon Norge, SS Legion Norwegen, they have never existed if you ask Norwegian government. Same with Frikorps/Freikorps Danmark here, all documents stamped "secret" for 75 years.

    Greetings Maxim,
    you have my deepest respect and gratitude for the manner in which you appreciate and honor these true warriors. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. I grew up in Germany in my younger years and never missed an opportunity to let a German veteran know how much I respected them...They were my idols, and I still remember every single one of them and the stories they shared with me. Thanks again, Glenn
