02.February 01
Nuav is two years today, and with well over 76 000 visitors, we have proven the demand for this kind of information! We have worked hard to get these results. I have to say that all the co-workers have constantly been working on their projects, but they have not been able to get their articles and information online the last months. I, the webmaster is to blame for this. I have been married in december, and one my kids have been in hospital, and is still sick. As you all know, Nuav is a project based on volunters effort, unfortunally, I have been haunted by several predictable and unpredictable events, that's tied up all my spare time, when I was supposed to do updates. It seems that things is lightening up and I begin to be ready to work with Nuav again. I hope you all will understand this, and continue to visit and support us!
I have started to update the members page, with new prizes to win! To give you an idea what our paying members have helped us with so far, here a short listing:
We could afford to register our own domain, we could afford to buy rare books and reference material and finally, we could afford to buy 50 mb space in a webhotel, and we paied for lifetime use!
29. October
One of the most important recources Nuav got, is the archive with 2000+ original images from ww2. As a project to try to enhance some of the images, I have tried to transform black and white images into colored images. Perhaps you would like to check out my little experiment. Please mail me and tell me what you think! Should I continue with this work, or should I leave the images alone, and present them unaltered and in original state?
25. October
The Link page is updated. Most of the new sites was suggested to us via e-mail from you, the visitor. If you know about a really good ww2 site, mail us now!
08. October
Finally the Aboutus page is updated. This time it's yours truly that reveals my inner secrets, you'll even get to see a picture of me! How do I really look like? This is probably the best kept secret in the world! Not even Bjørn and Simon knows for sure! Bjørn Jervås once guessed that I was about 120 kg, 130 cm high, with red hear and freckles. Well, that sounds like a real Norwegian troll to me, I guess he's right about it all! ;-)
07. October
The article about Den Norske Legion (Frw. Legion Norwegen) has been updated, a complete list of the general staff of “Den norske Legion”, July 1941, in Oslo (administrative) is added.

Book reviews updated. Our co-worker, Simon Orchard has decided to donate most of his militaria collection to the benefit of Nuav! (You are free to do so too ;-)) These items will be traded or sold at The collection range from cloth insignia to daggers and medals, we recommend that you visit ju52 and check out if you find anything of interest. Only a few items will be put online at the time, so check out for new objects regularly!
30. July
I was actually planning to wait till we got 50 000 visitors before this huge update, but what the heck, my 30th birthday is in a couple of days, so I guess I will not have the time doing it then. So many new features is added, here goes; First of all, I have wanted to present those co-workers who is making Nuav such a great place to be (I hope). Simon Orchard has the honour to be the first one out. Next presentation will come asap. A book review section is added, only a few books is currently reviewed, but this page will grow rapidly. A rare treat for those into militaria, documents and research; Nuav have aquired a Soldbuch from a Norwegian Volunteer in the Waffen-SS, and these are as rare as a dog that speaks Norwegian! Read the story behind it, maybe you'll be surprised over what a Norwegian Waffen-SS officer did with a picture of Hitler? Have you ever wondered about those insignias and rank patches on german uniforms? We have tried to make a short list with illustrations, and hope they can help you out in your research. Our new and updated Linkpage has changed it's name to "Resource page" because it function more as a rescource for historians, students and others with the interest of ww2 history. Heaps of new links have been added, you'll spend hours in here! Hope you enjoy all the new features, happy 50 000 visitors! (And happy birthday to me!)
17. July
Two articles has been redesigned: Den Norske Legion (Frw. Legion Norwegen) and History of the Norwegian Political SS. I have also added a DOWNLOADABLE Norwegian Waffen-SS song. You can find it in the Norwegian volunters in wehrmach and Waffen-SS article. In the same article, I have added a drawing of a soldier in a waffen-SS uniform as well. Check it out, and tell us what you think.


I have lost some of the update information below, so it's not 2 months since the last update! The last weeks have been busy for me, I have been in court and I have been preparing my new company "IKOn Design", and my kids has been sick lately. To top it all, my old server suddenly changed the url to Nuav, so I had to update all the pages in panic last night. All links on every page should work by now. The plan was to wait with this update till all the pages got the same design. I have started with the Panzerunit in Norway and Volunteers article, Please mail me and tell me what you think of Nuavs new look! I have tried to make it match the frontpage, and simulated old sheet of paper look. I think it looks ok to me, but I have been working on it so long that I've turned "blind" and can't see anything wrong with it. I changed the design into light background to help those of you who want to print out a page or two for your own reference. There will be much updates on Nuav in the near future, new articles is on it's way, and heaps of unique pictures is waiting to get online.
30. April
Fixed some spelling errors in the picture section (Luftwaffe), facelift of frontpage. Nuav has got a new sponsor, Brandenburg Historica, who is a serious American dealer. They got lots of music from ww2, great militaria items in stock + many superb book titles! Remember to tell our sponsors that you found their ad in Nuav. If you want to see some pictures from Bergen of the 60 years anniversary of the German invasion of Norway, you can go here. The text is in Norwegian, but the pictures is interesting.
7. April
It's two days left to the 60 years anniversary for Germanys invasion in Norway 1940, and it's about time to show you all the real reason for the few updates lately: Nuav can provide the biggest article about coastal artillery in Norway 1940-45 ever presented on the net! "Festung Norwegen" is written by Bjørn Jervås, and both him and the webmaster almost turned crazy with all the small details to make this article almost perfect. We are afraid to say 100% perfect, as there are bound to be mistakes in an 69 pages + article, but it will at least rate 99,9%! Visit it, search for the units, -go nuts and don't get lost in there! We would also remind our visitors about our new militaria page at We have just added a very, very rare Fallschirmjaeger helmet! If you click on the pop-up window, you'll be supporting Nuav as well! Preparation and battle of Bergen has been updated.
The militaria dealer "Jamie Cross" has decided to support us, visit him, he 's got a lot of quality items for sale! Remember to always tell our sponsors you found their ad in Nuav!
20. March 2000
Finally "Norway during WW2" got it's own domain, you can now visit us at (Why Nuav? Nuav= Norge Under Andre Verdenskrig or Norway during ww2 in norwegian) We are still located at the old adress, but you should make a bookmark on the new one! To avoid confusions regarding trading militaria and the research done at Nuav, we have now opened our own domain to be able to serve you better. You can visit our new and improved militaria page at! This will provide an excellent service to our sponsors and members, so why don't you join in?
