PH World War Two 018


Dear TimeGhost Army,

Because we are improving our workflow schedule, we’re working ahead of time and at multiple episodes at the same time. We’d like to invite you to help find pictures for the 18th episode (It’s Christmas now!) as well!

You can help us by finding public domain photos or videos from the Reuters Archive. The Free Finnish Defence Forces Archive might be especially useful for the Finnish parts of this episode. If you want the urls to all the sources, click here!

For more information, go here. For the leaderboard, go here.

:arrow_right: Have you found one of them? Write ‘which of the listed pictures it is’, ‘the url where you found it’ and ‘the licensing situation’.

Happy Hunting! :camera_flash:
