Two were bashful


This is one of the largest posed groups of nude Finnish troops that I've seen,
and two of them seem to have been more modest than the rest.

    1. Somebody said, "Line up for the camera, boys." And they did.

  2. Two of the men have lost the lower half of one leg and have a wooden leg. They are amazingly brave to continue fighting.

    1. I hadn't noticed that, Thomas. Thanks for pointing it out. There are four total, which leaves me wondering it this was taken outside a hospital.

  3. Two of the guys at right resemble the Inuit of North America, so perhaps they are Laplanders?-Dee

    1. I've noticed the same types in other SA-Kuva photos, and I think you may be right about them being Laplanders, or Sami as they call themselves. The Sami originated in Siberia where Asian influences are strong.
