Retired Finnish Uniform info
Like all male Finnish citizens, I am required to perform a mandatory 6-month conscription service in the Defence Forces. My question is about the former Finnish uniform. My father did his service in 1982, and I have seen his military pass, in which he is wearing a dark gray leave/dress uniform. As far as I know, the armed forces do not use this uniform anymore, due to the itroduction of the new M/05 system. Does anyone know anything else about this uniform, I am interested in discovering more about it. As far as I can tell, the uniform is slightly more modern than the uniform my grandfather wore in the army in 1946.
