Yes it is Finnish.

Hälytyskello = Alarm bell

Can I ask where's that pic from?

Thank you for the translation! That box is in the C-47 that's in the D-Day museum in New Orleans. I was there the day of it's last flight. They were doing publicity flights and trying to burn as much fuel out of it as they could before taking it down to the museum. The plane has a proud battle history, having participated in the four major airborne assaults of the European campaign. Post-war, it was transferred to the Finnish Air Force, where it gained the label you kindly translated for me.
Here are some pictures:

I did a quick Google research, looks like this aircraft has a very interesting history indeed.

Thanks for the story and photos!

Beware! Dirkpit is mischievous. Actually, it means "Auto-destruction". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
