So back from a Baltic Cruise and thought I might share some of my snaps from the excellent Swedish Army musuem, pop over to my blog for a raft more pictures and garbled narrative.

The Swedes have had a great military history, at least up to and including Charles XII.

Bernadotte turned Sweden into a Russian client state and ruined them.

Bernadotte turned Sweden into a Russian client state and ruined them.

What do you expect from a scheming, treasonous coward.
But to be fair Swedish military prowess disappeared in 1722 and didn't come back during the almost 100 years before Bernadette showed up.

$15 USD per half hour of WiFi- that's outrageous! It should be free. I am shocked. Shocked.

I went there in May after my Baltic cruise. It was fantastic and I really liked the hands on opportunity to handle all those weapons, especially that Finnish anti-tank rifle. It was huge.

in contrast to Boney Bernadotte led Sweden to glory, while France – ended in red ruin.
