Hello. I am a 45 year old war veteran. I have worked half my life as a paramedic here in Norway. Before this I was a officer at the Swedish armed forces for 5 years with active service abroad. I grew up with a father that had a lot of historic interest, he gave me so much knowledge and stories from the ww1 & ww2. Remembering borrowing some of he´s books about the happenings and great battles from the year of 1939-45. I read them over and over again. Also have travelled a lot visiting historical places, last one was the beaches of Normandie last summer. I have so much respect for all the participations of the horrific ww2. I have seen the worst sides of what war and it tradegy´s it gives us. Served in Bosnia-Herzegovina from 1994-96 as a infantery squad leader. I also lost my grandfather and two of my grand uncles when they voulentered during the ww2, and crossed the boarder to Finland, fron Sweden. They fought the Russians in the winterwar of 1939...and never came home. I still remember my father and his tears everytime he saw a picture of my grandfather. It still hurts for me....many years later. Last 4 years I have been studying the history of the Norwegian ww2 and it´s heroic help recived from allied contries. Especially here in Lillehammer, at the lowest part of Gudbrandsdalen, the fights were brutal and harsh. A lot of british soldiers fell this spring of 1939, when Germany advanced north, after taking Oslo, chasing the royal family. We have 35 commonwealth graves here in Lillehammer. I visit the often. I am just trying to make sure their restingplace are beeing well looked after and sit down to show my deep respect for these young men that gave their lives for us during these 2 months. I am so honored i every way!! It is thanks to these men and boys me and my family can go on living in such beautiful nature and peacefull areas that we do today. My request is, is it possible to get in touch with the families or relatives in any way? I would just like to write them a mail and show my respect, put flowers on their restingplace and send them a picture...only to say, THANK YOU!
