During the Second World War, hand-made all-white snow uniforms were worn by Norwegian troops until the nation was overrun by Nazi Germany. White oversuits have continued in use into the present era, although of varying types of fabric and styles of uniform. In the 1950s, Norway experimented with simple camouflage patterns printed on a combination poncho & shelter half. One version incorporates blue-grey, dark green, reddish-brown and dark pink long "wave" shapes bordered with dark brown. These were in service into the 1970s and possibly later.
