Finnish Army Ablutions

Today we will spend some more time with the resourceful Finnish Army.  Despite the hardships of war, they managed to get clean, get rid of lice, and even enjoy their passion for the sauna.  Today's series begins with a group of men who have just finished getting baths in a lake.  You'd already know that if I hadn't cropped this from a larger image to focus on the most interesting part.



  1. Sisu pulled the Finn's through some pretty crappy times...

    1. I had the pleasure to work with a group of Finns for several months in Bangkok, and they were very hard working, resourceful people. They were also very aware of their own history and ready to defend themselves against great odds if necessary.
