Default Large Group of a WW1 participant and later diplomat with finnish and swedish medals

Hello guys,


today I would like to introduce a beautiful and extensive estate of Gottfried Körner.

Gottfried Körner was a member of the "Kgl. Sächs. Karabinier Regiment (2nd heavy regiment)" and fought in the campaign in Finland.

He was awarded the Iron Cross 1st and 2nd Class, as well as the "Saxe-Weimar Knight's Crown with Swords 2nd. Class of the White Falcon” and the "Saxon Albert Order; 2nd. Class Knight's Cross with Swords.

Furthermore, he has the Finnish "Memorial Medal of the War of Independence 1918" and the Finnish "Liberty Cross III. Class 1918 ".

The estate also includes a (rare) miniature of the Finnish Jäger Badge (Jääkärikunniamerkki) and a soldier's figure of the Jäger Battalion 27 ("Royal Prussian Jäger Battalion No. 27" - "Finnische Jäger")

While the awarding of the commemorative medal and the freedom cross are documented by documents, there are unfortunately no records of the Jäger badge. However, it is obvious that the cross was also awarded to Gottfried Körner.

In May 1935, Körner was called up to the Wehrmacht and, after training at the OKH in March 1936, was assigned to the German Legation in Helsinki as a military officer.
In October 1936 he was awarded the Wehrmacht service award 4th grade.
During his diplomatic service he was awarded in November 1938 with the Knight's Cross 1st Class of the Royal Swedish Sword Order and on April 7, 1938 with the Knight's Cross 1st Class of the White Rose of Finland. The award certificates and the authorizations for acceptance are available here.

He was also the Finnish "Liberty Cross III. Class 1939 with Swords ".

From June 1941 he was on the Eastern Front in use until he was commanded in the fall of 1942 after an injury to the Army High Command at the Army Weapons Office in Berlin as a spokesman for foreign weapons.

On May 1, the then came into American captivity, from which he was released in August 1945.

Unfortunately, the Finnish and Swedish award documents are in relatively poor condition and the figure has a damage / repair. But the rest of the estate is in good to very good condition.

greetings

Jörg
