Pictures from my army-time

I spent my conscription-time (almost the whole year 1995) in the Reconnaissance Artillery Battalion of Artillery Brigade at Niinisalo and in the Reserve Officer School at Hamina.

Me and my combat pit. I digged that by hand through ground frost.

An old 105K33 fires.

Shells hit the target-area. Dispersion is measured.

And more shell-fragments strike the enemy. A view over an artillery fire control post.
