I found information on my Finnish grandfather on this site so it might be a help to others. '
This list includes Finnish-born Anzacs. Ethnically most of them were Finns, but some might be of Swedish or other Scandinavian origin. I have no idea why it says russian anzacs.

Hi Tracy.

The reason for "Russian" is very simple. Finland was a grand duchy of Russia between 1809 and 1917. During that time Finns had Russian passport and the merchant marine flew the Russian flag. Their "nationality" was officially Russian but the ethnicity was Finnish.

And if there are two names in the Place -field. The first one is the swedish and the second is the finnish one added as an explanation - "Helsingfors (Helsinki)" that indicates that the person was a Swedish speaking but if there is just one name "Helsinki" the person obviously was Finnish speaking. As far as I can read the lists. And that has nothing to do with ethnicity just with their native language. They are swedish spaking people from Finland
