    Default Winter war documents to same fallen soldier

    I bought this tragic grouping today. It consists of 9 letters from the same Finnish soldier to his wife. The soldier died the day after the last letter (20.12.1939) in the battle of Ägläjärvi (part of the battle of Tolvajärvi). The grouping includes a signed document to the relatives by commander Aaro Pajari and the document to the widow awarding her the cross of Liberty 4th class w/swords and black ribbon 1939 - "Mourning Cross".

    An excerpt from the last letter reads "The russians are coming on in such numbers that it is impossible to shoot them all".

    Pictures from the battle of Ägläjärvi Finnish troops, commander A. Pajari during the battle, the grouping and a picture of the cross of liberty 4th class.
