Leif J., of Egersund, Norway, has set up a museum-quality display of World War II uniforms in the basement of his father's house. He is currently working on establishing it as a full-service, stand-alone museum.
|This is the garb of a British pilot that crashed just outside Egersund. He was flying a Halifax bomber that was tugging a Horsa glider with Royal Engineers to blow up Vemork at Rjukan (Heavy water factory). The life jacket was purchased in England after the war. Everything else is original, even the American flight suit.|
|Germanic SS Norway uniform with the "Front Fighter" badge and the Germanic Proficiency Runes (awarded to those that distinguished themselves in sports competition). This is an Allgemeine-SS uniform that was given to Germany's allies during the war.|
