    Basically, this card was most likely sent along with a present (possibly that photo) so that his mother, father and god sister would remember him. Things like this were typically written on cards accompanying presents.

    For nice memory for papa, mama, god-sister and brother. From the Kritsa (Krasnoarmetsev - Red Army) of the 2nd Radio Batallion. B. (Boris probably or Bogdan) Egin

    Also, is it dated 1939/1940? Because the term Kritsa wasn't really used in the 2nd World War - it was, just not as often as in the Civil War. Also, uniforms make me think civil war and not 1940.

    Thank You so much for Your response. Civil war might be right even though the seller insisted on the Finnish winter war. Thanks for Your translation!

    The term KRASNOARMEETS (''Kritsa'') has been in use up untill the end of WW2 in 1945.

    Second radio regiment, not batallion.

    This photo was taken sometime between mid 20s and 1940.
