    The grenades tied together is the so-called "Geballte Ladung", often used as an anti-tank measure due to the lack of proper anti-tank weaponry. I know that the Germans made these when confronted with the T-34. The Russo-Finnish War was also the "birthplace" of the Molotov Cocktail...As they say, necessity is the mother of invention!

    The remains were buried in cemetaries in Finland after identification. Finns together with Russians have carried out excavations on the Carelian istmus for many summers now, recovering lots of Finnsh soldiers missing in action during the 1941-44 war against the Soviet union. Very interesting and dramatic/sad piture really..

    Regards Jan
