Johan Benjamin Jauhiainen, a Finnish Officer...

A   hand   made   holster   was   done   to   fit   his   LP08.   Jauhiainen,   with   other   100   men,   came   back to   Finland   in   December   1917   with   his   LP08   and   other   two   huge   gun   cargo.   Most   of   them were ordered to training Home Guards around Finland. On   February/May   1918   they   took   a   part   to   Finland's   struggle   for   independence   on   the White's side. After the Civil War these men were as a back bone of independence Finland's Army. Jauhiainen served in the army in the Wyborg´s Battalion. During   the   Winter   War   1939-40   he   was   as   battalion   commander   (35   Infantry   Regiment)   in North Carelia.
