    Respect to those that served and died, and also to those that risked their lives and worked so hard to recover them.
    Great photos, thanks for showing them.

    I am still amazed at how well-preserved everything that comes from swamps is. Did you recover much of the airframe?

    Maybe this:

    Date is certainly the Winter War,
    time is changed to 12 hours by me:

    21.Dec 1939 2.30pm Kämärä Luutn(ltnt) Jaakko Vuorela FR-87 DB-3
    21.Dec 1939 2.30pm Kämärä Vänr(ensign) Joel Savonen FR-93 DB-3

    Not sure about Vänrikki, any Finns correct me?
    FR-number meant it was the Finnish primary fighter in Winter War Fokker D-XXI, or D-21, Fokker D.XXI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The place sounds like it was 'Säiniö' near Viipuri ('Kämärä's there as well)
    Just having a guess in a case she was shot down by another aircraft.
