The Scandinavian
Volunteers
who helped save Finland

A very interesting historical lecture will be presented by Dr. Don Johnson using film and sound clips, slides and a narrative. This is the little known story of a small contingent of Swedish, Norwegian and Danish volunteers who assumed the responsibility for the defense of all of northern Finland, thereby allowing the transfer of Finnish reserves to the decisive battles on the Karelian Isthmus.

GUEST SPEAKER FINLAND'S AMBASSADOR JUKKA VALTASAARI.
