Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that at the Mannerheim Line, Russo-Finnish border, in 1939, at an unknown time, Finnish troops, holding the Mannerheim Line against Russian Soviet troops, declared that they had seen hundreds of figures attributed to have been angels floating in the sky.

The source is indicated as "T Peter Park, The Anomalist # 10".

Points to consider:

Some types of spiders migrate through the air, sometimes in large numbers, on cobweb gliders, white looking, or even seemingly glowing in the sunset. Maybe that was what these troops saw, if the event took place at all.
