The unofficial FRIDAY spin-off: On our way to WEDNESDAY
« on: October 07, 2020, 09:17:44 AM »
Military acronym of the day: PVVMSK

Puolustusvoimien varusmiessoittokunta. The Defence Forces Conscript Band. But of course!  O:-)

I always thought the few remaining military bands here in Finland are all professional, but no, conscripts get trained, too. So not only can you be the best you can be as a tanker or gunner, you can be a drummer! Or flutist!

I also learnt each year, the conscript band compose and perform their very own and unique Tango Juliet Zero (TJ0, zero bugle calls left, today) song they then play at the events when the transcripts get to go home.

Here’s the 2017 video: KOTIMATKALLA - ON OUR WAY HOME

These kids are alright.

Look out for the cool drum solo at 2:30 – We do love our military drums  <:-)

Bored out of my mind today… Hope you enjoy (although obviously everything in Finnish)!

Combat vest on, from the barracks to the forest
Our instruments stay when we leave for the school

There are good and bad days behind it
But in any situation i can trust these guys
Proudly we carry our blue beret

[Your shoelaces are visible! - Yeah no need to point out anymore!]

Others laugh at us but we know
You will never find better soldiers

...


;; For over a year we supported each other
Now side by side we stand on the finish line
No more mornings on the calendar
Today we are finally on our way home

The last steps, our days are over
But though our paths diverge I will not forget you

We did not lie down, we refused to give up
Together whatever, I will remember you ;;
