Finnish Waffen-SS officers

by Juha Hujanen

The list contains mini-biographies of 104 Finnish Waffen-SS officers and it should contain all Finns that reached the rank of officer in Wafften-SS.


Key to the list:

Lastname,Firstname(s)
Highest rank in W-SS

Born - Date and place.If no country is mentioned,the place of birth is in Finland.
Died or KIA - If person was KIA after he was disbanded from W-SS,its with "While in Finnish Army".

Arrived to Germany. Almost everyone Finnish Volunteers arrived to Germany in one of 5 batches.1st arrived 8 May 1941,2nd 17 May 1941,3rd 25 May 1941,4th 5 June 1941 and 5th 7 June 41. They sailed in ships through Baltic and 4 batches landed in Danzig and 1 in Stettin.

Disbanded - Date the person was disbanded from W-SS.There was too many officers for one battalion and so some 15 officers were send home in 31 July 1941. In early 1942 21 officers who had served in various Wiking units were also disbanded. And the rest officers were disbanded when the Finnish battalion was dissolved in 11 July 43.

Units - FFB="Finnisches Freiwilligen Bataillon der Waffen-SS". Later it was known as "IV./Norland,IV(finn)/Norland and final title was "III(finn)/Norland. Originally FFB had 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th Company. In May 42 numbers changes so that 1st became 9th,2nd became 10th,3rd became 11th
and 4th became 12th. So 1./FFB was after May 42 9./Norland and so on.

Awards - This was a tricky one.The awards higher from EKII should be all listed but there is no list of such awards like Infantry Assault Badges or Wound Badges or any other such awards. The awards in list are gathered by me from photographs.Only clear cases are listed and so list is far from complete.For example most of officers should be worthy to receive Ost Medaille but if i didn't saw officer pic with Ost Medaille ribbon, I didn't list it.

Notes - additional info.All 21 officers who graduated from Bad Tölz should be in list.
