    Awards of Finnish officer

    You are right, Hans. I heard from Finnish colleagues that some Finnish veterans often don’t want to wear German (Nazi) awards. Perhaps that is why there is no the Cross of Finnish SS volunteers on this grouping.
  5. Set of awards of Finnish officer. He has graduated Finnish Cadet Military school. He took part in Winter War on Taipale front (as White Home Guard officer). In 1941-1943 he fought in Ukraine and Caucasus as a volunteer of Finnish Battalion of Division SS “Wiking”. In 1943-1944 he took part in Continuation War in Karelia. In 1944-1945 he took part in Lapland War against Germans. He also was known in Finland as musician and composer.
