Finnish Gunner’s of the 18th Century

A platoon of smartly dressed Finnish artillerymen with a mobile cannon in the Army of the 18th Century. This platoon was probably based in Turku. They bear a close resemblance to the Swedish-Finnish artillery of the 18th century. The uniforms worn by this group of men is similar to those used during Charles XII (King of Sweden from 1697 to 1718). This card was sent to me by one of my friends who preferres to remain anonymous.
