The ones with these captions have dates incorrect

"Four Princes and one Princess. circa 1916 " Carl Johan is 3 or 4 yrs old there, so it's got to be 1919 or 1920.

"This is one of (or maybe the last) Crown Princess Maragaret's last groupphoto in 1920 because later that year she died, a great loss.
From Left: Prince Gustaf Adolf, Prince Carl Johan, Crown Princess Margareth, Prince Sigvard, Princess Ingrid and Prince Bertil." Carl Johan is an infant, so it's got to be 1916 or 1917.
1st of all:
No, actually we're both wrong (let me say I was wrong) because "Four Princes and one Princess. circa 1916 " was captured after the Crown Princess death!

2nd:
Even your remark on the 2nd picture is infact incorrect. If you take a closer look at the photo you might see the actual year of the caption!

Devin, there was no baby born after 1916, so if she's with an infant, it has to be Carl Johan, therefore it has to be 1916 or 1917. Who else could the baby have been otherwise?

The photo could have been re-issued after she died, making for the date mix-up. But there is no way that picture was taken after Carl Johan had moved from infancy to toddlerhood.

There's a military march named "The Duke of Västerbotten" (Hertigen av Västerbotten) written by Per Berg in the 1930s, and it's (of course) dedicated to Prince Gustaf Adolf.
Per Berg was the musical director at "Västerbottens regemente" and the march has later been adopted as the cavalery's march past (defileringsmarsch). Why? Well, The Prince was an outstanding hourseman, a member of Sweden's Olympic show-jumping team in 1936 and he also became known as "The Rider Prince". / SULAN

It's time for our favourite duke!
This time I have repaired a few pictures becuase on there were some scratches and paint on them, so I decided to fix them and put my name on the picture.

Folks, we have waited too long for some photos of "Västerbotten"
(which was one of Prince Gustaf Adolf's nicknames).

Let's start with a photo from 1928 (It was the same year of Gustaf V 70th birthday).
From left: The Crown prince, Prince Carl, King Gustaf V, Prince Lennart and Prince Gustaf Adolf on horseback.

This picture is one of my favourites, It's showing the 21-year old prince as an officer at Svea Livgarde and at Livregementets Dragoner, The same year he got his officer-epoulettes (Epålleter in Swedish please correct my english translation) which can be sed on this picture.
