Norwegian army units

On this page I list all Norwegian army units I have been able to identify. This should include all combat units from company and up (note that infantry companies are explicitly listed only if they don't belong to a standardised battalion). Most HQs, schools and support formations should also be included in the list. For each unit I have tried to list superior unit, location and for higher units the commander, for other units notes on composition or whereabouts has included.

The units are listed by type. For the infantry they are subdivided into the different district commands (D.K.)
The designations of the different units are the ones used by the Norwegian sources. For translations see the short Explanation of terminology.

For some units I have wanted to show component units. This is then noted like in the example below:

3.Div skole (school)
- befelsklasse + forskole
- troppsførerkursus

Explanation of table columns
Unit: The Norwegian designation of the unit (see: Explanation of terminology for translations).
Superior unit: Normally the higher formation a unit will belong to after mobilisation. I e for an infantry battalion it would usually be a brigade or a division (district command). For HQs, military schools and other special units, the HQ they are sorting under is given.
Location: For combat and support units it is the location of the depots. For military schools and HQs the location of their barracks or offices are given.
Commanders: Rank and name are given. Sometimes also their age within parenthesis. Ex: Maj. Lauritz G. Bryhn (45)
Status: For some units the composition is given. For units mobilized prior to 9.April, the whereabouts of the unit is given. I have used the term "set-up" to describe unit mobilisation under "peaceful" conditions.
