Click to enlarge

Miniature bronze medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the arms of Karelia, being a crossed sword and scimitar imposed on a stylised river, within a ring circumscribed ‘EI SANOIN MUTTA TEOIN’ (Not in Words but in Deeds); the reverse inscribed ‘KARJALAN / PUOLESTA’ (For Karelia) below a cross gammée and spray of spruce; slight glue residue to the reverse; diameter 16.03mm (0.63 inch); on probably original correct ribbon.

The Medal was instituted in 1923 and awarded to participants in the campaign in Karelia during the Wars of Kindred Nations against Soviet Russia.

The number of White Finnish volunteers involved was small and just 2,500 full-size medals were manufactured; the miniature is found less often.
