Eighty years on. 27th February 1940


The Red Army continued its offensive towards Viipuri in a pincer movement including an assault across frozen Viipuri Bay.

The Finnish government begged its Scandinavian neighbours for help, but Norway and Sweden reaffirmed their neutrality in fear of Soviet reprisals.  300 Finnish children were evacuated to Stockholm, Sweden.

Although Norway and Sweden refused to allow British and French troops to cross through their territory to aid Finland, the first British volunteers left for Finland.
