Juha, I am unclear on how to have someone added. I would think I have to nominate someone to a panel to adjudicate whether all appears correct.

Jimmy an Australian was shot down near Molvika on the Arctic Coast of Norway then taken by lorry to Rovaniemi in mid Finland before being flown in a JU 52 transport to Helsinki. After a night in a cramped civilian jail the five were flown to Frankfurt and began their status as POW’s at Dulag Luft. On Hitler's orders he was one of 50 executed as an example to other escapees. Some of my information was drawn from Finnish State Records but I don't have a reference. Thanks Geoff Raebel - Australia

Hi Juha, I live in the UK, is it possible to have a sub category and badge for the English Civil War 1642-1651 between the Royalist and Parliamentarian forces. This was a series of three Civil Wars fought between those dates, known as The 'English Civil War' or Wars.

It is my intention to remain involved in the profiles in ancient Scandinavia, if not to edit them, but because with some, I have personal knowledge of the profilres and earlier work they performed. In those cases, the person originally at work on the profiles should be involved in their modification if they wish to.
