    It is indeed very nice. I believe it was awarded to the soldiers of Gruppe Feurstein who participated in a forced march from Fauske towards Narvik to rescue Dietl's troops in the battle of Narvik in 1940.
    On May 4th 1940 General Feuerstein’s 2nd Gebirgsjäger Division started marching 350 miles North from Trondheim to relieve Dietl’s 139th Gebirgsjäger Regiment isolated in Narvik, fighting Allied troops at various points along the way.

    I hadn't seen one of these documents before and now I have seen 2 in the space of a month!

    Beautiful document!

    Looks like it is printed by: Emil Moestue a.s - Oslo
    Emil Moestue a.s still exists and still is a Norwegian "printing" business....

    The drawing looks like it symbolizes when German soldiers retook Narvik from the English, French and Norwegian soldiers that took Narvik...

    Can't help you with the rest, sorry

    Below some photos of "Emil Moestue a.s - Oslo" from the 1930
