I have a Swedish ancestor who was what we were told a Swedish soldier. He however was "stationed" in a rural area outside a village. This is where the myth comes in. He was not in a barracks but was stationed in the rural area and as I understand he could be called for duty. This would be in the period l870-1908. Have any of you heard of such a thing in Swedish history that their soldiers were on call. I understand he was with the Jonkoping regiment. Did they do anything other than be a soldier like keep order as a sheriff would do. I am told he raised his family in a soldiers hut dont know if that means anything to you all who know about the life of a soldier in Sweden in 1870 to l908
