after finding an actual bag with a few tools in it-
crimping pliers, tape measure, chalk & case, hockey tape [what I call it]
I am making inert dummy caps, fuse, pull igniters...
What I have never seen is the TNT or Amatol charges themselves.
Across the internet are pictures, evern dummies of US, Soviet, German charges... but nothing Finnish
I ask what weight charges were used, their markings & perhaps dimensions?
"are purple hearts for soldiers & bronze stars for officers?'

Based on after-action reports, 3 kg satchel charge might have been the most common one. The heaviest mobile charges I have seen records of are 20 and 30 kg charges used to destroy immobile enemy tanks in 1944.
