Prizren: Collateral Conflict Damage was common place.
Despite such damage properties were occupied.
As a unit we were required to undertake mines awareness training prior to any work. This was given by the Swedish Military.
Autopsies were conducted by medical staff from Australia, USA, Singapore and the UK. Each cadaver on arrival would be subjected to a fluoroscopy examination, Right
One of the most unpleasant tasks was that of cleansing the deceased clothing.
When completed an album of photographs was prepared and forwarded to the V.R.I.C. for a more formal identification process.
During the exhumation of cadavers from a local cemetery (Dragodan), the team was visited by Carla Del Ponte of the U.N. tribunal in The Hague.
