Hello!

Here are some photos taken in August in Helsinki. The Union of the Finnish War Veterans celebrated their 50'th anniversary.

Now that is interesting. Knew that the Finnish swastikas pre-dated use (or perhaps more accurately - misuse) by the Nazis, and that they are a very wide-spread luck symbol (or sun symbol), fond across Europe, India and in North America. But exactly what caused Finland to adopt them, i didn't know.

This from the museum near the Helsinki airport
The main place this plane is on display. This is a very good little museum and too be honest as good as the main air museum at Tikka.
