    Default Winter war 1939-40 Leipäsuo combat- KIA Red Army soldiers recovered

    October, 2012 year, swamps in the Leipasuo lake county. The soldiers from 123 Cadre Infantry Regiment, most in service was a young men from Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia.
    At the the shots after the 1:00:00 hrs in the video you can see the peoples who work with this recovery- cannot continue the work and vomiting.
    All the soldiers was reburied , some of the soldiers are recognized. Take a look at the pictures and video about the condition. The camera man cannot continue the work when the bodies from the bottom of the bomb crater where recovered, but really that was a awfully hard work. The work was made by a Russian Patriotic search group The Star" - "Zvezda" from Vyborg- Viipuri

    Indeed.

    What a grim job recovering these poor lost souls, even as an Archaeologist I don't think I could undertake this sort of work.

    Respect to those who can.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    It takes a special person and a true calling to handle the deceased, especially in preservation and decay. The most humbling moment was the identification book (am I correct in saying that?) with the photo of the soldier. So well preserved. Sometimes we can distance ourselves from the deceased but usually not when you can relate a face and a name to the area.

    May they know eternal peace.
