    Let's see if anyone knows better than we do

    I'll upload both the pictures here. As I said, the pictures are really small and dont show anything new. These are really the only pics of him I could photograph. Way to small and badly lighted.

    Great pictures. I assume your great-grandfather was Valdemar Armas Kivelä?
    could you maybe scan the pictures into your computer? It will be easier to see insignia, belt, uniform, etc. and it will maybe help you/us out a little.

    Yes, Armas Valdemar Kivelä

    Yeah I've a scanner, not sure if it works though, but I'll try. I'll scan at the same time the whole bunch of pictures, which is propably around 50 photos.

    Sounds great! I try to look into and translate the old paper.
    But now you have my email (send to you by pm)
    Could you take some pictures of the medals you got - front and back?

    Great

    The text is full of ''shortenings'' so even I, a native Finnish speaker cant understand all from it..

    I can take picture of the medal and it's ribbon from front only, because it's attached to a frame with the certificate and it's pain in the arse to remove it In the back is ''Urheudesta and För Tapperheit'' If I remember correctly. The other medas are not with me, but with my relatives.

    I'll send the pics to your email when I got them scanned

    I have sent you a pm.

    Yes it will be just great.
    No that is the text on front! - on the back it says Suomen Kansalta. It was the years on the back I was searching for!
    Looking forward to the email. I have translated a bit for you. Some troubles with some of it since I don't speak or write finnish. But I manage.. I hope.
