Interesting photos about Finnland in WWII

Post by Christoph Awender » 19 Sep 2002 04:52

Hello!

Thought someone is interested in some photos about finnish troops and persons in WWII.
Maybe some scandinavian members of the forum recognize or remember the athlets on the last photos.
Hope you enjoy them.

Christoph,

Very nice photos, thanks for sharing them!

This one is my favorite (I've always been a fan of flags)

Thanks for photos. I have seen a lot of photos but most of these were unknown.

Some more about famous Finnish persons or Swedish volunteers:

Great photos! Can anyone supply my "forthcoming" webpage with a few good photos on Finns and Germans in Finland? All will be credited to the owner of the original photo.

BTW The saluting officer in that Finnish SS picture above is Battalion Commander Sturmbannführer (Major) Hans Collani.
