Got this division badge from the winter war III/JR 13 (third battalion JR 13).
Supposed to have been made in total 500 examples by Tillander.
Made of silver and enamel, marked L6 for 1940.
During the winter war against Russia JR13 fought at ex the battles of Summa.
If anyone got some more info about this division feel free to comment.

Nice and not common badge

3. Battalion of Infantry Regiment 13, belonged to the 5th Division.

IR 13 was established in Turku and was centered on 16-17 October in Kämärä. The third battalion commander was first captain V. Laakso and after him Major Yrjö Rafael Tuompo from March 4, 1940.

That I could find abou this unit
