    Found out some more, seems like the soldier Feodor Pavlovich Agibalow died in the military hospital nr. 58 (58. SotaS. Kannus) situated in a school building Kannus W Finland (picture below). This hospital treated Soviet prisoners of war.

    A simple memorial marks the final resting place of the 185 Soviet soldiers that died of their wounds and disease in the hospital 1941-1942.

    Today we got hold the soldiers (Red Cross) POW records. Lot´s of interesting information here:

    - He was taken prisoner in Petrozavodsk (Petroskoi) on September 27th 1941.
    - He served as a footsoldier.
    - He arrived to the POW hospital in Kannus 4 months after beeing taken prisoner on the 31st of January (in the middle of the freezing winter of 1942) and died less than two weeks later at the age of 39.

    His civilan occupation was "forest worker" and he was married.

    Sadly a lot of the information is in Russian so possibly someone can help me out with these (mostly names of relatives).

    Interesting story. This also applies to the Hanko1941 website. The fact that Fedor Agibalov's POW card (sotavankikortti) can be found on the Pamyat Naroda website suggests that his family may be aware of his death.
