Actually the 88 is not in firing position. The gun is still on its wheels. To fire precisely wheels should be removed.

Re: Chaplains

The Finnish battalion, III.(finn.)/SS-Rgt. "Nordland" had a Finnish chaplain that was killed in action. He had a "cover duty" as liaison officer. There were no restrictions of his relegius ceremonies, however.

Re: Syria 1941.

Here's a couple of recent pictures taken from the Israeli side.
This valley became famous in the Yom Kippur War 1973. Israelis gave it a nick-name "The Valley of Tears".
The place is about 20 km north of Kuneitra.

Re: Syria 1941.

Familiar places. I was in the area in early 1980's as an UN Peace-keeping Officer.
Alas, an interesting topic for me!

Re: New Wilhelm Tieke translation from JJF

Very welcome translation!
I've read the Finnish translation and I think it is good, maybe even a bit too enthusiastic about Finn's fighting capabilities.
