Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, I didn't remember correctly there (or remembered incorrect information). From somewhere I remembered that during the union Sweden and Norway was in theory equal, but Sweden had the military, prisons and foreign policy. Probably a simplification for the students, but then again it those you actually remember :)

There was a Norwegian military during the union, though a small one until 1885, after that there was general male conscription. All according to Norwegian wikipedia.
