A large number of conscripts are to start their military service in the borough of Madla in Stavanger on Sunday. The number of conscripts starting their military service there is the largest ever for the place.

A total of 1,150 recruits will attend the boot camp KNM Harald Hair at Madla. 25 percent of the conscripts are women.  156 of those will serve in the Air Force, while 166 of them will be in the Navy.

In summer   4131 recruits have been called up. The first of those met on Sessvollmoen on July 19th.
All Norwegian women born in 1997 and later, will become conscripts when they are old enough to enter the armed forces after universal military service was introduced in Norway on January 1 last year. The first women to enter the service, do so during the summer of 2016.
