Hi, just thought to post some pictures that were taken by Information Company (IC) photographers of the Finnish Army (Finnish Defence Forces of today) during the Winter War (1939-1940) and Continuation War (1941-1944).
The pictures come from the SA-KUVA site (http://sa-kuva.fi) where they were released to public domain about ten years ago. You can use them for non-commercial use as long a proper attribution is provided (SA-KUVA).
I went through the photos and found quite a few sightings of Pelikans and some other pens of that era. Thought they might be of interest to some of you.
The pictures provided are in the order of appearance.
