    Default Uniform to identify - Norwegian ???

    I've been shown pictures of uniform that I cant recognize. It looks like RAF pattern, but in cloth. It's got 'Ferner Jacobsen a.s Oslo' makers label underneath so I thought it might be Nowergian (as they used some British patterns during and after the war). But the buttons are strange - have never seen such coat of arms on any gear - close to Swedish but still no...

    Pls help...

    It might be of interest, that this jacket was discovered together with items and documents most probably belonging to Second Leutnant Aage Westermark, Norwegian pilot of 331 Squadron...

    The ge Westermark lot, is just excellent. Please keep it together. It's a historic lot, from a brave man. He probably flew for the SAS postwar.

    All the best

    Some fantastic news is that the lot is kept together and now beautifully restored and displayed in one of the museums in Poland. Maybe one day those should be back in Norway... Maybe any Norwegian museum will be interested in exchange for Polish items...
