    Please post if you know details of the awarding of this medal. I have found very little about it online. Most references seem to be to the Order of the White Rose. Thanks.

    Thanks Steve, I don't have this book myself but have often thought of purchasing 'The Orders and Medals of Finland' by Jani Tiainen. Its available at http://www.finnmedals.net/epages/Kau...oducts/0000711

    Expensive but good reference books are. The exchange rate for Euros and the shipping from Finland dissuades me from buying a copy - that and I keep investing in good reference books on pistols and holsters instead. But I really should as the web site stated that they are almost sold out.
