    funnily enough i was at Buktamoen this summer and have dug there before.

    Of course it doesn't mean the shield was produced there, it could have been made elsewhere, there was quite a bit of troop movement within Norway prior to being shipped out.

    i'd certainly like to see a few other groups from units in the same area with this style of shield

        Any such thread would be incomplete, but a comprehensive article on the Lappland shield is perhaps something i should write, it hasn't been done before.

          No sample shield Lappland was officially accepted.
          All Lappland shields were made in primitive hand-held ways from hand-held materials. Just some types of shields were put on in-line release, and some were made in single copies.

            Hi Yuriy,

            Thanks for showing that very nice grouping!
            This of course also answers my question on some solid proof.
            Is there a particular story that came accompanied with this grouping?
            If so please share it, I would love to know.

            Kind regards,

              Hi Simon,

              Great idea, and I fully encourage you to write such an article!
              Would be a very useful contribution on this subject.

              Kind regards,

                Unfortunately, I don 't have a special history. I had a familiar collector who for many years in families of veterans bought documents of mountain egers, including documents with shields of Lapplandia. I have a few such shields left in my collection.
                Yours faithfully!

                    Here are some more interesting Lappland shields to review. All shields in were found with documents of mountain Jägers of the army "Lappland" at various times.

                      I've seen this type associated with MG Ski Brigade Finnland and generally in the SE area of Norway

                        I've seen several similar types to these which are amongst the most poorly executed examples, without the accompanying paperwork there's nothing much to say about them

                          Hi Stive,

                          Unfortunate that it does not have a special story to it.
                          Still a very nice grouping and good looking grouping!
                          Cool you held on to some of those shields, in my opinion the arctic theater is one of the most interesting and underestimated theaters of World War Two.

                                Is this shield also original?
