In a paper on the height of the young men fit for military service in Sweden (Heft 4), Dr. J. Vilh Hultkranz claims that the Swedes are about the same height as the Norwegians. The average height of the young men fitted for military service has increased by about five millimetres between 1887 and 1894. Similar observations have been made in Norway. From recent measurements it appears that the Bosnians rank with the Scandinavians and Scottish as the tallest peoples in Europe.
