not so sure about the French rifle. i'll look into it. old Finnish Mosin- Nagant, more likely.This prevented the army from expaning and from getting new weapons and equipment. When the Winter War began, the soldiers were provided with a belt, a national cocade, and most of the time, an old French rifle.
baron von rosen, not rosenberg, was a Swede.The Finnish armed forces emblem, the blue swastika, was originally a good-luck-charm of Baron von Rosenberg, a German benefactor,
'comb' should be replaced with 'stripper clip'. 7 rounds baffles me, Mosins had clips of five. and the Lahti-Saloranta should be classified as a Light machine gun and not an automatic rifle. sorry to be nitpicky.Most of the ammo went to the isthmus front, in fact, there were some battles in the north where Finnish riflemen had to fight with only one comb of ammo of 7 rounds, or no ammo at all! There was also at least one submachinegun and one automatic rifle (Finnish made Lahti-Saloranta) per platoon.
