    Default Finns In The Red Army

    This thread was hard to place in the right section, so I'm sorry if it's in the wrong place.

    I stumbled upon photos of rather peculiar looking uniforms, on a Karelian news site. They look like M/36 uniforms and the article spoke of Finns who fought for the Red Army, during the Winter War. What do you guys think, is this a Finnish M/36 re-tailored?

    Ah, the uniforms in the photos are Polish. The Finnish Peoples Army got most if it's supplies from Poland, when the Soviet Union occupied it.
