Hi Juha

I adopted Nathaniel Scudder then noticed he was project protected. He was given project protection back in 2015 but doesn't have a project as a manager. I think he would fit in the 1776 project, so I've orphaned him so you can take over. Let me know if you want me to do something different. Thank you.

It is odd in one of the few military contacts between Australia and Finland, Finns shot at my Dad as they transited to Russia. an hour later the Germans at Petsamo gave the Australian a "green" light to land. Fortunately the navigator noticed the black crosses on the parked aircraft. One of the other Australian aircraft was shot down in Sweden by a German fighter out of Norway

Hi Juha,

I have just posted a Week 1 Greeters message on the profile of Rauno Tuominen whose tag notes that his father was born in Finland. Would you drop by and check on him. He has made limited contributions so far.
