Those are Soviet troops, not Finns.

Note that those Portuguese soldiers are armed with AR10's. My Father was a Captain in the Merchant Marine and his Company, Moore-McCormack sailed to South America and to South Africa. Docking in Mozambique he was greeted by the company's agent and invited to the agent's home. He started to get into the agent's car, and the agent said "Excuse me" and put his submachine gun in the back seat. Very nice home surrounded by tall walls, and after a nice dinner, they said their good nights and the agent told him not to go out in the court yard after dark, as they let the dogs run then. This was before the troubles got bad there. John
