Lauri Nurminen served in the White Guard in the Finnish Civil War just after the war broke out in 1918, when he was barely 12 years old.
He died on 20 February 2009, at the age of 102. Aarne Arvonen was believed to be the last Finnish Civil War veteran at his death until Nurminen was found and verified as a veteran in 2010, nearly one year after his death. At death, he was the last Finnish Civil War veteran of the conflict.
