Beloostrov (Finnish Valkeasaari) was on the Russia side of the 1939 Soviet/Finnish border before the Winter War. The only building that remains after five years of warfare was a pumping station.

Leaving the harbor of Pladiski after arrival in Estonia on August 19th 1944. As the returning volunteers had not been allowed to keep their rucksacks, the men carried their few belongings in paper bags.

Some of the medals awarded to my father after the war for his service in JR 200. I don’t know what they represent so if someone recognizes any of them please feel free to drop me a line.
