Norwegians in Nova Scotia during the Second World War
by the Norwegian Embassy, Ottawa
In 1940 Norway, with a population of some 3,000,000, had the
third largest ocean going merchant fleet in the world, about 1100 ships.
When Nazi Germany invaded the country without warning on the 9th of April
that year, 1024 of those ships were at sea.  The King immediately ordered
them all to proceed to allied ports.  At the same time, the German-backed
government that had been set up in Oslo under Vidkun Quisling, was
broadcasting orders for the ships to return home.  Not a single one did so
and Norway's great merchant fleet was now at the disposal of the Allies.
This is where Nova Scotia comes in to the picture...
