During the Continuation War 1941-44 many Civil Guard members acted in Civil Defense roles, such as air raid wardens.  Seen above are items from such duties, white M17 Finnish helmet, French made binoculars, M95 Nagant, and Finnish issued German made flare pistol.


The Civil Guard Model 1932 tunic is a very rare item to encounter today.  For more information on Civil Guard issue tunics, please see the Finnish Tunic area of the main site.

Each Civil Guard district had its own color patches and cockades.  Today original versions of these are rare but Milpro OY of Finland is making good reproductions.  All above are original items.
