Hi Bart,

 

to be honest i have never seen a "normal" straight forward explanation regaring the Oak leaf rather that "being an additional award to the recipient". The finnish Order of LIberty has always been a bit tricky since the different grades was intended for certain ranks so i guess due to the recipients ranks of effort an addition had to be made rather than stepping up to the next grade for a lesser effort although some heroic deeds granted some a higher grade than their rank granted them in recognition of their service. 

 

I hope i wrote that some what understandable :ph34r:
