    Being a Quartermaster in the Finnish forces must have been the hardest job in WW2-sorting out an incredible jumble of equipment from just about every major nation in the world and making it all work...

    I have always thought this too when you look at all the differet rifles used and Field guns and also aircraft used must have been nightmare for the Quatermaster issuing the right supplies to the right units
