    Default My battlefield finds from the Hanko front in Finland

    Russian and Finnish helmet shells and cartridges to the Finnish UkkoPekka rifle etc... from an island were Soviet and Finnish troops fought for the control over the Hanko peninsula. The finds were made on the ground in the Hanko archipelago. I will update with more soon.

    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

    Sorry to revive such an old thread, but these are some great finds Jan! I would be very interested in seeing more of these. Did you find these yourself?

    OK, that explains why these helmets are so well preserved:-). Very nice finds, a German helmet was also my first find when I was around 10 years old.
