Re: Simo Häyä

Yes, thats him : ) though to be precise, he still continued in training studies after being wounded. He would likely have been fit enough for field duty during the Continuation War, but the higher-ups didn't want risking losing him, so combat duties were out of the question. And yes, the number of k...

German equipment in post-war use

If I recall correctly, we already had a thread for Third Reich weapons in postwar use, and now I would be interested in photos of fieldgear, uniforms etc. Bundeswehr, BGS and the East Germans probably used a lot of field gear in their early years, as did the Czechs as far as I know. But who else? An...

Re: Finnish uniforms

True, though using privately purchased summer caps during leave or even in the field wasn't exactly rare, so go ahead if you want one as an alternative :D

Re: Trousers question

Hi, -Originally the straight trousers were for officers and the breeches for the soldiers, but then (when?), soldiers were allowed to wear straight ones. I don't know where you have heard this... If anything, breeches were more common among officers. -The m36 regular trousers are in the same color t...

Re: Finnish uniforms

Milform also stocks large sizes of postwar greatcoats, the only difference is that they're a bit shorter and sometimes have plastic buttons (just don't get a model 65, though. It's different).

Re: Finnish Boots vs big calf muscles

Apparently the finns also made some ankleboots before (and during?) the war.

Re: Controversial history

Quite interesting to note that Suomen historian pikkujättiläinen and Jatkosodan pikkujättiläinen give such differing casualty figures, considering that they are part of the same series. Also, even though Lapland War was primarily a young men's war (aren't they all :) ) some seasoned units did take p...
