Finland - Medaille - "For the Winter War 1939-1940" (Cuckoo) with Swords - 1940

Medals "For the Winter War 1939-1940" (Cuckoo) with Swords Material-Bronze Obverse: in the center is a Finnish soldier - a sniper, in a protective uniform with a rifle in his hand, at the top of the medal is an image of a crown, two bent arms with a European sword and an oriental saber - a symbol of the eternal struggle between Europe and Asia (the coat of arms of Finnish Karelia - Karelian Isthmus) against the background of an equilateral cross. Further along the circumference (clockwise) is the image of the coats of arms of the Finnish main lands and provinces. Reverse: two-line Finnish inscription KUNNIA ISANMAA (Russian translation; HONOR RODINA) in the center. The framing of the text composition is represented by a spruce wreath and an equilateral cross. The medal was established on August 2, 1940. Finnish soldiers and officers were awarded for participation in the Soviet-Finnish War from December 8, 1939 to March 13, 1940. The Finnish snipers who took a position in the trees during the Winter War were called "cuckoos" by the Red Army soldiers, hence the name of the medal - Cuckoo. The term "cuckoo" is repeatedly found in the book "Fighting in Finland. Memoirs of participants”, published in the USSR in 1941, in which the “cuckoo” was most often described precisely as a sniper firing from a tree.
