ORGANISATION OF NATIONAL DEFENCE. 159

None but Finnish citizens can enter the
Finnish army.

In time of peace every officer must retire
from the service at the age of from fifty to sixty
years, if he occupies a position lower than that
of a battalion commander. Officers enjoy the
same rights as civil servants.

The effective strength of the troops in time
of peace is fixed by law. Their formation,
their distribution over the different arms and
their localisation, are decided by the Emperor
and Grand Duke on the motion of the Senate.

The law establishes the order in which the
reserves must be called out in case of war, so as
to complement the active army, as also to form
depot troops. The object of the armed force
of Finland is to defend the Throne and the
Fatherland, and thus to contribute to the
defence of the Empire.
