Description

The Swedish Volunteer Corps during the Winter War numbered 9,640. Sweden was officially non-belligerent during the course of the war, so only volunteers could be used by Finland. The volunteers were in the front lines in northern Salla area starting on February 28, 1940. Losses included 33 dead, 10 missing, 50 wounded and 130 disabled due to frostbite. There were 25 planes in the Swedish Voluntary Air Force, F19. The Swedish volunteers also defended Turku with an anti-aircraft battery.Photo by: Hugo SaksanenAhlen & AkerlundsPhoto taken: 1940
