Notes:

The practice seemed to be that a plaque would be presented to the Company on the occasion of a visit by military personnel.

The Finnish Defence Forces are responsible for the defence of Finland and the Finnish Air Force (FAF or FiAF) is one branch of the Defence force. The FAF operates F/A-18 aircraft among others. The overall Defence Force insignia is a golden lion holding a sword against a red castle tower.
