    I found a picture from Div. Nord stick what was posted by our forum member Jan. Look at the cross - I still think that that maybe it is not the EK but a Finland military award. So I belive Your stick is also from Finland origin. As it is "denazified" it belonged to the German owner because there was no need to "denazify" such items in Finland (Finns still have swastika as their military symbol and it does not have anything to do with the III Reich). Did you got it from Germany? If yes, I quess it maybe belonged to a person who was stationed in Turku and also in Narva. Usually engravings are from the places the owner was stationed during the war. Does anyone know history of suchs walkingsticks? I have seen many examples from Germany and Austria what were made before WWII - you got a stick and then started to collect little brass plates to that sticks when You were on vacation for example. I belive it is an old tradition common in the southern part of Germany and in Austria.

    Yes it did come from Germany Juhan so your reasoning could well be correct , it could be a member of the Finnish Btl of Wiking who after the Finns returned to their own country in 1943 was moved to Nordland or the Estonian Divison !!

    I got yesterday a package from Germany... The stick is in perfect condition, looks like it was never used. Engraving is not the best but I still like it. There is just word Russland, nothing more.
