    Default Finnish Defence Forces during the 1960s and 1970s

    I found four rather nice short films from 1964, 1969 and 1972. The first one was filmed in Sodankylä, Lapland, when the Jaeger Brigade moved there from Vaasa, Western Finland. The clothes, weapons and equipment is a mix of WWII and newer stuff: m/29 field kitchen, m/36 tunic and cap, m/54 cap, m/62 camouflage jacket etc.



    Finnish Navy in 1969.





    The third one was filmed in Pohjan Prikaati in Oulu. The Defence Forces had adapted new m/65 service uniform, so the appearance of the conscripts is quite uniform.

    Nice find! Thanks for sharing. In 03 we still used those m/62 and sarkapuku's in Jääkäriprikaati.

    Following film was actually filmed in 1982, but shows the equipment used by the Finnish Air Force from the beginning of the 1970s and onwards.
