Hi, I noticed you've been adding some images to Category:Images from the German Federal Archive, location Finnland. Just wanted to give you a hint about the numbering of the images from the Bundesarchiv. F.ex if File:Bundesarchiv Bild 101I-111-1800-15, Nordeuropa, Beladen eines Panzerwerfers 43.jpg is from Finnland, it's likely that all these images: User:Jerazol/Bundesarchiv_-_Norske_bilder#Bild_101I-111-1800-xx are in fact from Finnland, since the last two digits indicates the numbering of the negative on the same roll of film. The same goes for: User:Jerazol/Bundesarchiv_-_Norske_bilder#Bild_101I-107-1346-xx Is there btw. anything in particular that indicate that the railway and Panzerwerfer images are from Finnland?

- Thanks for the naming information - I was unaware of that. Concerning images:
- Roll "Bild_101I-107-1346-xx" is from Finland for sure, since Lapplands-Kurieren was printed in Finland.
- The trains, I must admid are somewhat more guessing: for my eyes the landscape looks more like typical Finnish one, not Norwegian. (I really don't even now know how far up North there was a railroad on Norwegian side during the war.)
- The Panzerwerfer is most vague: but considering the time summer 1944 the front and the action was in Finland since on those days there was no common border between Norway and Russia. Of course the troops can be situated in Norway, it doesn't look like frontline on the pics.
- Since location of the train pics and the Panzerwerfer is unknown I left two categories, Norway and Finland. But do you have some specific information telling the pictures are actually from Norway - as the original caption names both Norway and Finland? --Riisipuuro (talk) 00:34, 1 February 2009 (UTC)--
- No hard evidence, but I'm pretty sure the train pics are taken on field railway Hyrynsalmi—Taivalkoski—Kuusamo-Vanttajankangas (Kiestinki) in Eastern Finland. Germans built the track 1942-1944 (landscape is very much alike. There were not so many light tracks up north.) The locomotive is German army model, Heeresfeldbahnlokomotive HF 200 D. --Riisipuuro (talk) 13:38, 1 February 2009 (UTC)--
- I don't really have anything pointing either way, I just initially put all images from Category:Images from the German Federal Archive, location Nordeuropa into Category:Images from the German Federal Archive, location Norwegen. This is obviously not correct, but it was a staring point, and seemed to fit for at least quite a few of the images from coastal fortresses etc. As for the images of people and images inland, it's more vague.

- Most of them are from Norway, anyhow. Actually it was a good starting point, don't get me wrong. Most difficult to differ from Norwegian ones are those from coast of Petsamo and Kalastajasaarento. Germans had quite a coastal artillery also there, and also flak batteries (in Kolosjoki nickel mines Germans had the most dense flak defence of the Eastern front). So probably there are some pictures of coastal defense and flak from Finnish side, but they are very hard to find since landscape is similar. And there is a strong possibility that among pictures of Luftwaffe, quite many are taken in Alakurtti and other airfields in Finland (just becouse there was about the same amount of planes in both countries, 200 pcs). Btw, according to one website I found the Panzerwerfer serie was located to Finland, but the source is unreliable. It may be that the serie has been published in some book in Finland, so with a good luck I may even find a reliable source. --Riisipuuro (talk) 18:28, 1 February 2009 (UTC)--
Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:
- Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
- State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
- If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
- Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
- Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.
If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.
You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.
Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.
Tip: Categorizing images
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.
