Swedish term or phrase: m.y.
Occurs in a technical report, in a list of descriptions of samples taken at an aviation fuel spillage around a crash site in Lapland.
Item reads: Uppkastad torv på m.y. torr

A later item reads: 'Uppkastad torv med islag av minerogent. ytprov.' which I have translated as "Thrown up peat with deposits of minerogenic. Surface sample."
So Uppkastad torv på m.y. torr coud be "Thrown up peat on dry minerogenic surface"???
