"This Convention represents the fourth updated version of the Geneva Convention on the wounded and sick following those adopted in 1864, 1906 and 1929. It contains 64 articles. These provide protection for the wounded and sick, but also for medical and religious personnel, medical units and medical transports. The Convention also recognizes the distinctive emblems. It has two annexes containing a draft agreement relating to hospital zones and a model identity card for medical and religious personnel." -
2. Geneva Covention for the amelioration of the condition of wounded, sick and shipwrecked members of armed forces at sea.
3. Geneva Convention relative to the treatment of Prisoners of War
4. Geneva Convention relative to the protection of civilian persons in time of War

Please note, this recording DOESN'T include the 3 protocols.

Also, when reading, please read the headings on the left and right of each article

  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!):
    https://www.icrc.org/eng/assets/files/publications/icrc-002-0173.pdf
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Here's Section 21 - (length 15:26)
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/geneva_conventions_1949_21_icrc.mp3

I wasn't sure how to name the file, as the instructions in the first post gave two options - (It looks like it could have been named either geneva_conventions_1949_21_icrc.mp3 or convention(iv)geneva_conventions_1949_21_icrc.mp3). I went with the first option, but if it should have been the second one, let me know and I'll rename it and send it again.

Are we missing the usual 128.kb that appears in all file names?

Well yes, I 've added it now I can easily add it when cataloguing - and do , because I'm still cataloguing projects that started before it was introduced,. the really critical part of the file name is the section number. Get that wrong and and there is a risk that you will either overwrite another file or that someone will overwrite yours.
