Swedish volunteer company

Captain Rickard Nilsson
Around 400 Swedish volunteers organized in a Swedish volunteer company held the line in Syväri (Svir) front from 1942 to 1944. They were ordered to Karelia around midsummer 1944 and participated in the furious battles until the war ended in September 1944. In the battles of summer 1944 the company fought with distinction.
