HISTORY

Founded in Dumfries in 1941 and triggerd by the many exiled Norwegians who lived and trained in the area during the War.  The present Scottish Norwegian Society (Glasgow) which was formed in 1943 is the surviving branch of that original Society.

 

HM King Olav V became the Society's Patron in 1951 and was guest of honour at a Dinner in Glasgow in 1966 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Society's institution.  

HM King Harald V is an Honorary Member.
