    Nice pick up. Don't know really anything about these so curious if these awarded only to Finns? Or their allies as well. Just asking given the name of the cross ("Kindred Nations").
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    This medal was minted in 1922, for Finnish volunteer participants in the campaigns in Estonia, Eastern Karelia, Aunus and Ingria against the westward Soviet Bolshevist campaign 1918 to 1922. If I remember correctly, this medal was only for Fins, and was only issued in limited number. However reproduced for veterans in the interwar period.

    Out if curiosity, what is the glory-text in medal document? Or better pic. I haven't seen this award paper before.

    Also, number of swords in medal means how many expeditions person took in.
    I have heard maxinum number of swords is 4, but i have only ever seen maxinum three swords at most.
