I have become aware of that there are quite an amount of sites about different Swedish UN missions on the Internet.

 

Let me introduce you to some of them:

A few photographs from my three different missions.


Since I have regrouped a few times during the recent 30 years I have lost track of my not too many photographs. However, I found a few among three generations of collected stuff the other night, and have managed to scan them for all of us to enjoy. I will continue my search...

Global Internet Première

Birgitta’s Song and Johan’s Hurrah

 

This is a clip from a 90 minutes long tape recording for my birthday in 1978, made by Birgitta and Johan Edgren. Johan at the time 14 years old.

The lack of good radio stations in The Sinai Desert made this tape cassette even more valuable during our long car journeys, and almost a necessity during the nocturnal ones, on the for hundreds of miles desolate roads!

I have treasured this tape so much and therefore kept it in such a safe place that I actually forgot where. My joy was tremendous when I just recently almost by accident rediscovered it!

Times have changed, and given us the opportunity to share recorded events like this through the Internet. I have taken the liberty to post this short clip without permission, and do fully understand that I am under the mercy of Birgitta!
