Red Baron
100 years ago died in action Freiherr Manfred Albrecht von Richthofen (2 May 1892 – 21 April 1918), also known as the "Red Baron". He was a fighter pilot with the German Air Force during World War I and he officially credited with 80 air combat victories with his red plane. On 21 April 1918 Richthofen received a fatal wound while flying near the Somme River, France. During the exchange of fire, Richthofen was struck by a bullet and died after crash-landing in a field.

Second Life Red Baron made by me and also starring Snoopy, the dog from Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts comic who was often dreaming about air battles with Red Baron.

The Battle of Water Castle's Hill (April 1918)
Linnanmäki (earlier Vesilinnanmäki ie. Water Castle's Hill) is today a place of an amusement park which was founded in 1950. However 100 years ago it was not so amusing place. The Battle of Helsinki was solved there.

The Battle of Helsinki was a 1918 Finnish Civil War battle, fought in 12–13 April between the German Baltic Sea Division and Finnish Reds. The city had been under Red control for 11 weeks since the beginning of the war.

The German troops occupied Helsinki very quickly. The last fighting Reds were at the northern worker districts of Kallio and Hakaniemi, where heavy artillery fire was aimed. Among other buildings, the Workers' House was hit and damaged severely.

But Germans could not enter to Kallio through the southern bridge (Pitkäsilta), because it was fortified with heavy barricades. The only way to Kallio was from North, through the rocky hills of Vesilinnanmäki where Red Guards' female department defended the hills very fiercely and efficiently. As a result of extreme efforts, the Germans finally managed to crush enemy resistance. They ran over the Red Ladies emplacements and the battle of Vesilinnanmäki was over.

At 2 PM (13 April), a white flag was raised on the tower of the Kallio Church and the whole battle of Helsinki ended.

Nearly 500 people were killed in the battle of the city. The number includes about 400 Red Guard fighters who were killed in action or executed after capitulation.

I reconstructed the Battle of Vesilinnanmäki between German troops and Red Ladies by Second Life avatars and environment.

The Civil war of Finland
Just over one month old Independence Finland went mad and a cruel Civil war was fought 27 January – 15 May 1918 between "the Reds", led by the Social Democratic Party, and "the Whites", conducted by the non-socialist, conservative-based Senate.

Eventually the White Guards won the war with aid of the Imperial Army of Germany. The Red Guards got some help from Russia and England.

Casualties and losses:

Whites
3,500 killed in action
1,650 executed
46 missing
4 Prisoner or War deaths
Swedes
55 killed in action
Germans
450–500 killed in action
Total
5,700–5,800 casualties

Reds
5,700 killed in action
10,000 executed
1,150 missing
12,500 Prisoner or War deceased,
700 acute deaths after release
Russians

1,600 executed
Total
32,500 casualties

KETCHUP THEORY
(Second Life pic by Laserskater, area: Saunaranta)

First you shake and squeeze but no ketchup comes out - so you shake even harder. In the end, the ketchup comes out in an enormous rush.

Such were with the first steps of Finland's independence, which was declared 12/6 1917 but only Russian's recognition 25 days later and exactly 100 years ago 12/31 1917 encouraged also other countries doing the same soon.

Thank you Uncle Lenin for opening the ketchup jar:

"The Soviet of People's
Commissars.

Petrograd.
Dec. 18, 1917. (ie 12/31.1917 in today's calendar)

Thanks for the fave. At first Red Star will probably be appearing in the odd written tale until my drawing skills develop.
