re: Norway cancel different

I'm goings out on a limb here (a rather safe limb, I think) and suggest that the cancellation probably commemorates King Haakon VII, who was elected to office and reigned for 52 years (1905-1957).

The story of Haakon's escape to Great Britain with his family, following the German invasion in 1940, stands as one of the great episodes of the Second World War in Europe. They left Norway in a small ship, taking with them the entire Norwegian treasury and barely escaping capture by the Germans. At one point, they sheltered near a small island and camouflaged the ship with tree branches so thoroughly that a German patrol boat failed to discover them even though it stopped nearby and played searchlights over the ship for several minutes. On arrival in Great Britain, Haakon established a Norwegian government in exile.

Now, perhaps another Stamporama member can confirm this supposition. If I'm wrong, I'll be interested in learning more. Here's the lightly edited Wikipedia entry about Haakon VII :

"Haakon VII (born Christian Frederik Carl Georg Valdemar Axel; 3 August 1872 – 21 September 1957), known as Prince Carl of Denmark until 1905, was a Danish prince who became the first king of Norway after the 1905 dissolution of the union with Sweden. He reigned from November 1905 until his death in September 1957.

As one of the few elected monarchs, Haakon quickly won the respect and affection of his people. He played a pivotal role in uniting the Norwegian nation in its resistance to the German invasion and subsequent five-year-long occupation of his country during World War II. Regarded as one of the greatest Norwegians of the twentieth century, he is particularly revered for his courage during the German invasion—he threatened abdication if the government cooperated with the invading Germans—and for his leadership and preservation of Norwegian unity during the occupation.

He became King of Norway before his father and older brother became kings of Denmark. During his reign, he saw his father, his brother and his nephew, Frederick IX, ascend the throne of Denmark, respectively in 1906, 1912 and 1947. He died at the age of 85 on 21 September 1957, after having reigned for nearly 52 years. He was succeeded by his only son, Olav V."

re: Norway cancel different

Bob,

Thank you for your reply and all the information concerning King Haakon VII, it
was most interesting.

But that night after posting I went thru some material that I had skimmed thru,
and found the following cover that may shed more info on the cancel.

Maybe someone will interpret the cancels date and meaning. Image Not Found

Thanks Roy, but can you interpret the date..

It seems to be either Oct. 28, 1946 or Dec. 15, 1946 or none of the above?

re: Norway cancel different

The cancellation apparently commemorates the opening of a postwar museum exhibition celebrating Norway's resistance fighters during the Nazi occupation of the Second World War. An academic paper that you can download from this web site — Making memories: The politics of remembrance in postwar Norway and Denmark — provides a lot of background.
