Something old Something new Something borrowed Something blue Little bits of Finland and anything Finnish around the world, in the past or in the present. If something borrowed is yours and you do not like it in this format, or think it's not properly credited let me know and I will change or delete it. You probably won't like or be interested in everything I put on this page, but hopefully you'll find a few things or learn something new about Finland.

Artillery General Vilho Petter Nenonen, Minister of Defence between 1923 and 1924. He trained in artillery in the Russian Army and fought in WW1. He was promoted to the rank of General of the Artillery in 1941. Nenonen developed the Finnish Army's artillery and tactics that proved decisive in the defensive victory in the Battle of Tali-Ihantala. The trajectory calculation formulas he developed are still in use today by all modern artillery. He received the Mannerheim Cross in 1945.
