Hans "Hasse" Wind doesn't sound swedish for me, http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hans = old german name for a boy
Hasse (geman) = Rabbit

Hasse was Finnish and born in Tammisaari in southern Finland. There are lots of Swedish speaking people along the coast and most of them speak Finnish as well. I have met him and he speaked perfect Finnish but I guess Swedish was his family's lanquage.

That's what I meant. Ethnic Swede living in Finland. Like I am ethnic Bosnian living in Sweden. By the way - we have a lot of Finns where I live. Great people, little shorttempered and in love with vodka, but great bunch!

Sorry to say but you are wrong with this.

Most of the Swedish speaking Finns take as an insult to call them Swedes. Nothing wrong with Sweden, but that's another country, not theirs.

Their families have many hundreds of years of history living in Finland. Ethnically and genetically there is no difference between them and Finnish speaking Finns.

During the WW2 there were Finnish speaking Finns, Swedish speaking Finns, Sami speaking Finns, Russian speaking Finns and Jewish Finns fifhting for Finland.

Interesting to see the lack on standardisation of Finish troops. Within the same unit one soldier wearing an Italian style helmet, whereas the soldier in the foreground had put on a German style one.

Actually that is a Russian helmet.

They had to use anything from anywhere, there was no standardisation.

Interesting thread. I always thought the name "Hans" and "John" were the same, just different languages. Hans is a northern European/Scandanavian version, not neccessarily German, although the 2nd most common name used by the Germans.
Living in Beijing, I've met a few Fins(from Nokia) and will meet another one tomorrow. So far I've found them to be easy going and likable people.
BTW, thx for the pics. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The standard especially during the Winter War was to get anything on that you can get and keeps you warm, Finland wasn't especially prepared to the war.

The continuation war was a little bit different, as Finland had time to get ready, but I guess the efforts went more to making hard equipment than clothes. Maybe there wasn't enough standard clothes to everybody that came to the front. It wasn't even a standard to wear a helmet, they were too heavy for the marches, I guess it was mostly soldiers who stand put (like those gunners) that wore them.

BTW, as for the helmet discussion, I have video footage of Chinese troops in training, in China, in the early 40's wearing German helmets. It's really a strange sight to see. Many more unanswered history questions. Can anyone guess why?

Finnish German style helmets were made in Finland and they are slightly different in shape from German helmets. That type was chosen because it was thought to be the best and most protective model compared to for example British washbasin. Also German troops on the side of winning White Army during the Civil War in 1918 may have influenced the leaders of Finnish Army.
