Toimi Ovaskainen

Post by Laurance.Robinson » 02 Jun 2019 14:10

I'm wondering where Toimi Ovaskainen was assigned to at the time of his awarding of the Mannerheim Cross,for a list I am compiling.

All I seem to get is moottoritorpedoveneen päällikkö MtvLv, chief/captain of a torpedo boat, do we know which one?

Thanks as always,

Laurance
