      I like the photo of the pile of helmets, bottles, the half mess tin and what appears to be a gun barrel and that metered compressed gas canister. One other item caught my attention, the round can with the H/H. Any idea what was in the can? Also, I am curious to know if the bottles were German or Russian.

      What books have you read about this part of the Continuation War? I'm looking for info on relatives that lived in that area at that time. Anything will be helpful in advancing my project.
