The above appears to be an official Norwegian war grave such as those at Troqueer and will probably be in CWGC care. I put the text below so it can be found by search engines. (there is no Norwegian equivalent of CWGC).

Her hviler Nordmannen menig
Olaf Vennesland
born 14-4-1905
died 21-12-1945

See http://www.regjeringen.no/upload/KKD/Kirke/NORSKE%20KRIGSGRAVER%20I%20UTLANDET_mai2008.pdf for a list of Norwegian War Graves Abroad (NORSKE KRIGSGRAVER I UTLANDET).

Olaf Vennesland is listed, as are others buried in Scottish cemeteries (and various countries around the world).
