Peace/Pace/Fred 200


1 In English 2 In Italiano 3 På Svenska

We have been blessed with more than 200 years of peace in Sweden and the last battle took place in Norway 1814. 

But there are still many Swedes who has fought in other armies. One of them was Linder Nelson who joined the Canadian army and was killed in action World War One

Abbiamo vissuto in pace per 200 anni in Svezia.

La nonna di mia moglie aveva un fratello si chiama Linder Nelson. Ha combattuto nelle guerre ( World War 1) per il Canada. Linder  è caduto nel 1918.

Sverige har haft fred i över 200 år Den 14 augusti  1814 utkämpades slaget vid Kjölbergs Bro i Norge. Trots det har svenskar deltagit i i krig i andra länders arméer En av dom var Linder Nelson, Bittes mormor bror,  som stupade i 1:a världskriget när han stred för Canadas armé. 

Han fick flera medaljer postumt. Bl. a. den ovan. Lite kuriosa är årtalen på den. Om man tittar noga så ser man att det står 1914 – 1919. Kriget avslutades 1918 och jag vet inte varför det står 1919.

    1. Germany occupied Norway and Denmark. If Hitler had continued to be successful I guess also we would have been attacked. The things that a lot of Swedes are ashamed of was when they allowed trains with German soldiers to pass through Sweden

  1. Visst är det en förmån att ha vuxit upp i ett land som har haft fred så länge.

    Sen har vi haft fred här hemma också, kanske därför som Anders fick Nobels fredspis? 😉
