    Hello,

    I have just arrived home after a weekend at my grandmother house! just doing the ordinary talking and looked at old photos
    in hers albums. I did found a man in the album who was wearing a Finnish uniform. I asked who the man was, and she replied that he was a adopted son by her relative. She also said that he was highly decorated during the war. so I picked up my phone and did a quick search of his name and did found that he was a the 174 MANNERHEIM KNIGHT.. just have to say that the world is small, could never imagine that I could have such a connection to a hero, although we are not related it feels pretty cool. That he has been a part of the family.

    Here is the photo of him my grandmother had in her album before he was a knight.
