Visiting the memorial in October this year (2008) was an emotional experience for me having last been at the site the day after the crash, as a serving officer in the (then) Northern Rhodesia Police. I donated some colour photos that I took at the crash scene of the wreckage of Hammarskjoeld's plane, The Albertina. Perhaps the most poignant experience was climbing steps (rather like aircraft steps) up the side of the anthill where Dag Hammarksjoeld's body was found. A small rest area at the top that overlooks the memorial is a remarkably calm and peaceful place to remember the tragedy and the turbulent times in which it occurred- so very different from when I was last there!
