The Finnish Defence Attaché, Captain Mika Raunu, will be giving a talk about Finland’s NATO Membership on Friday, 9 February at 3.00 pm at the Allen Room at St Anne’s Church. This event is hosted by the Anglo-Finnish Society.
Captain (Navy) Raunu will be addressing issues such as the reasons why the Finnish public mood switched so quickly in favour of NATO membership after so many decades of determined neutrality, how the system of national military service works, and how reservists are kept up to date, with some information about the number of full-time military professionals in Finland and also about ongoing contributions to UN peace-keeping forces.
This event is an external event hosted by the Anglo-Finnish Society. It is free and open to members and guests with a capacity of up to 40 in the Allen Room. Please email the Hon. Secretary Antti de Ruano at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend.
