A month ago me, my friends Betsi and pasgubbe
went to Sveaborg fortress outside of Helsinki to take some pictures with our uniforms from the time of the Finnish War.
I, Finland, am wearing the uniform used by Nylands Regemente (present at Sveaborg) from 1797. Newer uniform regulation had been issued by the king before 1808-09, but they had not spread to the eastern half of the Swedish Kingdom yet, so the 1797 ones were used throughout the war. :userBetsiel:, Russia, is wearing a Russian uniform from the same era. Both uniforms are handmade by ourselves.
Sveaborg fortress was the Swedish stronghold in the south of Finland, usually called "Finland's lock", though it never got to prove what it could do, as it surrendered under still considered very mysterious conditions quite early in the war.
So, on to the pictures! : )( Collapse )
