Some new photos i have picked up
Kradman's post of a great original wartime pic...
SA kuva's image of the same model 7.62 ItKk/31-40 VKT AA machine gun in action. Only 346 of these were produced. They were the main AA MG of the continuation war. Notice the adjustable site that was made specifically for these guns.
The same site in my collection.
I am new here and have a good opportunity to refresh this topic. Together with some orders, medals and documents I have got a Finnish photo album. One of the interesting pictures is this one taken on 6.8.33 in Utti (handwritten description back). Showing Finnish soldiers with the maps and a group of international officers (Finnish, Hungarian, Polish, Soviet and German Reichswehr, if I good recognize). Here is the whole photo and close-up to the officers
Next pictures come
Here is a photo I came across in my files from some time ago. I have no clue where it came from except from the internet years ago. I imagine that I saved it because it looked interesting,. It is a photo of 2 Soviet soldiers frozen solid still sitting in their fox hole in Finland 1940.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Welcome to the forum Tomasz yes the two guys standing on the right in the photo are Finnish and from the uniforms worn the photo would be pre ww2
the second picture, take on same day: August 6th, 1933 (date is on obverse, too). There is a bicycle battalion, supported by the cars. I made a close-up to the cars.
