Lieutenant Olli Remes photographed in Vilmajoki on November 21st, 1941.

During the Winter War, Remes led a detachment in Independent Battalion 17 (ErP 7), a guerrilla unit whose missions often took them behind enemy lines.
In the Continuation War he served first as a platoon leader and later as company commander in Infantry Regiment 54, before taking on company commander's duties in the 12th Brigade.
He was awarded the Cross of Freedom 4th class w/ swords, CoF 3rd class w/ swords, Winter War medal and he was the 10th recipient of the Mannerheim Cross (2nd class).
Remes was killed by a sniper's bullet two days after being promoted to the rank of Captain, on December 31st 1942 in Kriv at the age of 33.

He left behind a wife and two children.
Remes' final resting place is at Vieremä war heroes' cemetery (grave #113).

@Eich


Good work.


This is a bit OT, but I recently learned that you Englishmen have a kind of Bermuda triangle of yer own in place called Derbyshire. where people report seeing mysterious old warplanes flying silently and vanishing without a trace. You heard about this?

Still at the very beginning of this one... trying to give an impression of wartime Duxford illuminated below the clouds, as a 302 Sqn Hurricane arrives home. I've blocked in the aircraft very sketchily at this stage... it will be properly worked up only after I've finished with the clouds

A little further along...

About another day's work to do

Nice looking Hurricane Glynn but even better IMHO if it were rotated 180.
