I seem to recall someone asking me about our field rations, look what I just found:




(that's the best set I know of, no BS like that weird peach spread in place of the ham pâté etc....)

edit: damn now I am hungry, I think I have a portion bag of that shrimp & lobster soup from an old ration pack somewhere in my kitchen...

I just remembered: we have this proverb about how the artillery and infantry work together:

Well, then. Infantry must outnumber the gun bunnies by a huge margin.

Hey Apez do you have a Puukko?

depends on which definition for puukko one follows, I have a number of knives that meet most of the requirements for a puukko except for the fact that their grips are made out of plastic while the strictest definition requires a grip made out of wood or antler/bone, this one is my favorite, called "Sissipuukko M95" (not my knife as I am too lazy to upload a pic, plus this is better than I could manage to produce on a moment's notice of my own sissipuukko):

an anecdote: one night when I was returning from a party I was pretty wasted, in fact I was so wasted that I felt I absolutely had to take a short-cut through a cemetary. As I was passing through I had to stop to lean against a tree so that I don't fall, and as I was getting my shit together I happened to read what was engraved on a headstone: "Sonja, I told you I was sick!"

Imagine how the tradition would be observed in the military (an important figure (commander at least once while he/she is in command-) in the base thrown into a lake/the sea early in the morning, everyone trying their best not to laugh)...

and no, it's not observed in the Finnish military, at least not in my unit when I was in mandatory service, I don't remember that particular morning which means it was just another day in Basic training, one wakeup to go before our first weekend leave (I looked it up in the calendar, that's how I know it was a day before our first weekend leave)...
