    Default Helsinki Museum's Winter War Exhibition.

    More photographs from my trip to Helsinki, Finland. The ones below are taken from "The Winter War - Finland's Days of Honour" Exhibition. The museum itself can be found here: Military Museum. Liisankatu 1, 00170 Helsinki.

    There were some impressive displays and items. Including the 4 Maxim water cooled machine guns in an anti-aircraft roll in the entrance hall, Marshal Mannerheim's uniform and a reconstruction of a frontline trench. Entrance fee was very cheap (5 Euros) and there was nice little introduction by one of the guides included.

    Great pics The Winter war was remarkable for many reason, not least that the Finns gave the Russians a bloody nose

    Is that a Finnish Lahti-Saloranta M/26 light machine gun in the case with the Mosin Nagants and the Lahti M-35's?
    Would be as one rare critter I would think.
    Cheers again

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
