Unfortunately, no, Hans...
I do not know whether there is somewhere a list of the awardees?
I also have several other numbered Finnish awards, but I also don't know the names of the recipients.

Hi Hans!

As I have heard, it is possible to find Finnish awardees, using Veteran's Organizations. For example, Finnish Voluntary SS Cross - through Veljesapu-Perinneyhdistys ry, and Badge of 27th Prussian Jaeger Batallion - through Jaakaripataljoona 27:n perinneyhdistys ry.

I'm thinking to send some questions to these organizations in nearest future...

Good luck with your quest Artios! I know the list of finns in the SS can be hard to get names from due to the individual that has it.

Feel free to share your results when you get there

Those Finns sure have many medals from the Second World War !

    Congratulations on a superb collection Hans ! You have shown me medals I had no idea existed !

 I have a 1957 German ribbon bar from a veteran, showing a couple of Finnish medals......medals of Liberty first and second class.
