Kindred Nations War Cross (Heimosotaristi), 1918-1922

Kindred Nations War Cross (Heimosotaristi), 1918-1922 - In bronze, 39.8 mm x 40 mm, on original ribbon with one bronze sword device denoting participation in one campaign, extremely fine and rare. Footnote: This award was created in 1922, to reward Finnish volunteer participants in the campaigns in Estonia, Eastern Karelia, Aunus and Ingria (Kindred Nations) against Soviet Russia in the years from 1918 to 1922. The intervention of Finnish volunteers against Red forces in Estonia was crucial in her gaining independence. However, despite the upheavals of the Russian revolutions and civil war, there was never any real chance of the other areas to the east or south of Finland becoming independent of Russia. The number of volunteers involved in the nine campaigns was small, making the cross rare. (FN4166)
