Kenttäpostia introduces picture postcards and envelopes of Finnish wartime military mail. Soldiers were allowed to send letters and postcards free if they were stamped "KENTTÄPOSTIA". The examples are those my mother received during the war. She did tell me to destroy all her mail after her death but these are part of our history so I kept them. I hope she will not haunt me for this! I have added a few a more photos of the same era.
