The men of the armoured car detachment of the Helsinki Civil Guard in a joint photo

The Helsinki Civil Guard was established at the Citizens' Assembly on 10.11.1918. At first, a couple of regiments of infantry, an Old Boys regiment and a number of separate companies were formed. Already at that time, cavalry, artillery, signal and armoured car detachments also began.
