A little boy from a local “Buekorps” in Bergen.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Buekorps (Norwegian: [ˈbʉːəˌkɔrps], literally “Bow Corps” or “Archery Brigade”) are traditional marching neighbourhood youth organizations in Bergen, Norway.

The tradition is unique to Bergen. The organizations, which are called ‘bataljoner’ (battalions), were first formally organized in the 1850s and are run entirely by the youths themselves. Fourteen[citation needed] different such battalions are active in Bergen, each belonging to a certain part of town.”
