Valkeasaari is the right place, obviously you know more about that bunker.

Well, now that you have guided me to what I think is the right place.
Before your hint I checked the Mäkitalo-Vainio " Valkeasaaressa Läpimurto" book, at my bookshelf, but didn't find anything that would fit to your question. Only a photo of a captured bunker at Kirjasalo seemed to be a close call.

Yes, that's the third million bunker. Apparently everyone's name has come from building costs.
I believe there are other million bunkers as well, if they ever get listed.

Your turn Juha

OK.

An easy one for you, might be a time consuming for the rest of us...

Allright, this is an easy one for those who know:

The first tank type in Finnish army service was the Renault FT. What is the meaning of the letters FT in the original type marking, given by the Renault company?

Slightly confused by the question. Do you mean the finnish meaning or why Renault gave it the factory/design code FT?

I edited the question, but I mean your latter option.

Nothing as far as I know. FT comes after FS and before FU. It was just the way Renault named and identified their designs. Char Renault FT or
Renault FT tank. Later it was given various names... by others.

OK, not quite sure it is my turn but here goes. If I am wrong in keeping the quiz going - please ignore the post.
My question: Who is this Pacific fighter ace and why in this quiz? Happy hunting!
