Mannerheim Cross Knight no:12, Corporal Emil Pasanen (25.08.1910 - 06.10.1981)

My note: When we read stories about these heroes we must understand that they were fighting about Independence against overpowered enemy. This man was another humble farmer but with Suomi KP he was deadly soldier.
Shortly about his nomination: “During the battle at Suvilahti 21.08.41 Jäger(=Private ) Pasanen destroyed dozens of enemies escaping from houses under direct artillery gun fire. The next day at Jessoila he conquered important bridgehead hill with his fighting couple and holded it even his comrade had fallen until more troops came to help. 08.09.41 at Prääsä Pasanen was the only man able to battle against enemy's breakthrough attempt. With his MG he alone stopped the attack of 200 men". Pasanen was nominated immediatelly after army HQ got the Division Commander Major Aho's recommendations.

Command post of the Light Detachmet 10, Pertjärvi area, April the 17th 1942, where captured Soviet officers are waiting for interrogation.
.
During the WWII the Finns trained secret agents in the Petrozavodsk city. Most of them were volunteered Soviet POWs. Interestingly most of the agents were captured within a few days after dropping. Nowadays we know that the NKVD managed to get their own agent to the school in March 1942. Stepan Dmitrjevitsh Gumenjuk worked there as a teacher and even participated some long-range patrol missions.
.
Gumenjuk returned the USSR in autumn 1944.

Loppusodat sodittu viimeviikolla ja nyt TJ3 joten helppo hymyillä 😎 1,5v se näköjään otti ja matkan varrelle on mahtunut monen monta aamuista aamua, mutta tässä sitä nyt ollaan ja kotiudutaan. Melko värikkään ja monipuolisen palveluksen jälkeen kuitenkin todettava että hauskaakin on ollut ja lähtisin varmasti uudestaan jos nyt kysyttäis. Hatun nosto ja kiitokset 1/16 SKVJ-1.PionK, 2/16 SLUK AUK ja erityisesti K249 Kide PionK 🙌🏼 #pertjärvi #wäbä #reserviin #pioneerivoimaa #Eioo #Kovempaa #PionK #johaeilopu

Finnish warriors are preparing to seriously kick the Soviet asses in the Pertjärvi area on the Svir front, April the 17th 1942.
.
Despite being heavily outnumbered the Finns managed to repel the Soviet offensive. The enemy losses were estimated to be around 14000 fallen. The Finns lost a total of 2165 men, 440 fallen, rest of them wounded or missing.

Finnish Jaegers
.
Based on the date and location these distinguished soldiers belonged to the Board Jaeger Battalion 4, which was ordered to neutralize the Soviet scum in the western side of the Kasapuro Stream. Of course they can be from the 11th Division, too.
.
During the war the Finns had three kind of infantry: the ordinary, Jaegers and Board Jaegers. In addition to those they had the elite groups named Long-Range Patrol Men, some four companies who, sometimes, were trained for airborne operations.
.
Interesting detail: the (only) and most famous airborne mission was the one, requested by the Germans, where 13 Estonians were dropped behind the enemy lines. Dropping failed due a misorientation and some of them fell already in a Soviet garrison area. Rest of them were chased and killed in action or executed after capturing. A Finnish author Esa Anttala tells their story in his book Viimeinen partio (not translated).

A Soviet offensive expected

.
After beating the Germans at the steppes of the Moscow in December 1941, STAVKA started to plan a massive attack against the Finns. In December the Finns assumed that the enemy had some 40000 soldiers on the Olonets Isthmus. In the late March 1942 the amount was estimated to be about 72000. Meanwhile, the Finns had demobilized appr. 20 % of their troops, meaning that they were heavily outnumbered...
.
The Svir front was defended by four Finnish divisions and the German 163rd. The Soviets had five brigades and six divisions available for the offensive, which was launched on the 10th of April in the Pertjärvi area. The attack was expanded on the 11th in the area between Osta and Lotinapelto. Strike was repelled elsewhere, but on the western side of the Bardovskaja village the enemy managed to break the line and cross the Jandebajoki River.
.
The enemy was trying to reach the main road between the Syvärinkaupunki and Osta, and after loosing that connection the Finns would have to retreat across the Svir River.

Finnish war reporters Pekonen and Kouksinsky (winter camo) are observing the cleaning of the Pertjärvi pocket.
.
The enemy had cutted the main supply route on the 13th of April 1942 a couple kilometers westwards from the Pertjärvi village. The Finns counterattacked and managed to surround the Soviets during the next day. On the 15th they were beated, but the road stayed cutted in the Šemenski area.
.
Sad detail: Vladimir Kouksinsky (куксинский) fell two days later. He was born in Poland on the 18th of March 1910. He's resting in peace at the Greek-Catholic Cemetary of the St. Nicholaus's Church in the Helsinki city.
