Hi Mike,

No I hadn't seen this so thanks very much. It is very interesting for me to once again see so many Swedes fighting for the Boers while my grandfather was fighting for the British and also in their intelligence. I'm wondering if him being in the intelligence had anything to do with interrogating the Swedes and other Scandinavians who had been captured by the Brits. And if so how that would have gone. But as the Scandinavians were saying there were times when they were not fighting that they had friendly interaction with the British soldiers. I see a number of the Swedish soldiers came from Gothenburg where my grandfather also had a lot of family.
