Tombstone of the fallen in the Olonets expedition

Around fifty people from Turku went to the Olonets expedition. At the new city cemetery there is a tombstone of the grave of seven guys who have fallen in the East Karelia. All of them were born between 1901 and 1904, and the youngest was 15 years old only.

Turku branch of Suojeluskunta (Finnish army assisting organization) erected the tombstone at May 14, 1922. It is written by Finnish and Swedish "On behalf of Olonets 1919".
