From Eiríkur Thorvaldsson

On your web side for H-3 in Iceland in that old good days you ask about a picture of me and me and family. As Sigrjón have mailed -is my name Eirikur Thorvaldsson but I was always called "Eddie" and worked at the milk plant (dairy) in Hřfn. I'm Valdi´s oldest son.Im now 59 years (about 20 on that picture) Since 1978 I have been working as director of the milk company in Faroe Islands (www.mbm.fo). All barracks/buildings on Stokksnes are gone now. Just one automatic radar is left. My dad is still going strong (76) - here is picture of him taken in august this year

Thank you for the information. With your permission, I will add your e-mail to the "Mail Bag" page and update the notes on the picture. I will also post Valdi's picture. When you talk to him, tell him he still looks like he just stepped out of the Search Tower after working on the heating system. (That is one of my memories from H-3. There was a problem in the steam lines and a couple of his crew were not able to get the pipe to loosen in spite of a couple of them trying to get on the wrench. Valdi came in and he, by himself, gave the wrench a pull. His muscles were straining but he freed the pipe. He was one STRONG man and a GREAT person.)

You may not remember me but I was your guest at your house when the picture was taken. I seem to recall lace curtains hanging on the windows. I do recall the hospitality you, your wife and young daughter extended to me. Now 38 years later, let me say Thank You.
