View Full Version : Soldier in the Finnish Guards Battalion

03-06-10, 01:39
The man to the left is my great-grandfather's brother, Anders Johan Leopold Norrgren, who became staff captain in the Finnish Guards Battalion. This was, from what I have found out, the Tsarina's life guard, consisting of 24 Finnish men of noble descent.

Is it possible to find out who the other soldier is?

The photo was taken in the studio of Charles Rüsd. & Co. in Helsinki (Helsingfors) on 19th of August 1889. Anders was 20 years old.

I would be grateful for any help with this!

(Sorry, I had to attach the photo - couldn't figure out how to paste it into the post!)
