Section: - 2006-11-10/2006-11-10

Hereby we provide to you an opportunity for insight into the everyday life of a unit of Latvian army, which was based in Litene army camp. Photos were taken in the late thirties by a Latvian citizen, who was serving in the army at that time[1].

Today army camp Litene is notorious for treacherous murder of the Latvian army personnel by the Soviets after occupation of Latvia by Soviet Union (bearing certain similarity to murder of Polish military personnel by Soviets in Katyn)

Still, in those sunny days in Latvia there was peace and order, and seemed that it will be like that forever.
