Terve!
We are a small group based in Sweden and Finland, recreating 5 Ilves (lynx) Divisioona, a jäger regiment. We recently took part in a show at Parola Tank Museum, which was excellent and made better by being able to ride on a T-26!

We are always seeking contact with people with the same interest, and are planning to travel to Britain next year.
i myself am english, but my wife's grandfather was Finnish, and all of the members (so far) either are Finnish or have family there, but not having connections in Finland does not preclude membership!
Get in touch if you are interested in having contact with us...

Surely it would be easier to just drive to St. Petersburg and do a gig with the Finnish reconstructors there?

Well, it would be if i lived nearer to St. Petersburg, but southern Finland is closer to Sweden. Finland is a much better place to reenact Finnish soldiers, not least because of the availability of genuine kit..

This was an event done back in 2009 at a place called Kamenka on the Karelian Peninsular.

WoW! That looks really very good! I just heard that we may be coming to St.Petersburg next year, actually. If it's alright with you, i am going to post some of those pictures on our Facebook page.
Very impressive!

Yeah, go for it, post away! But I should say that all the Winter War reconstructions will begin in November, so in principle, you could come here in four months to see for yourself.

Who do you use as your supplier for Finnish uniforms? i've been interested in the Finnish forces for quite a while but have never found a good supplier.
