    Are the police checking identification papers or what? Are these military police or civilian?

    They are checking the civilians id's.

    The page doesn't have anything important in Finnish really. It only describes whats being shown, in the photos in a really simple way: Mustavalkokopio alkuperäiskappaleesta. Alkuperäinen, värillinen versio on toimitettu Designmuseoon - Black and white copy of the original piece. Design museum owns the original, colored version.

    I take it that the 'sota poliisi' were also used to guard prisoners. What are the Russian soldiers eating?



    I really like this pic showing the wearing of a puukko on the belt. Too bad that SA - Kuva logo is over top of it. What year would this photo date from?

    I think they are eating crisp bread (näkkileipä). I can edit the logo out.

    Given the early war kit the Soviet POW's are wearing, I would say Winter War.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Aleksander, that's a real nice shot of a puukko in its sheath attached to a belt.
