Hello!

 

I have a Finnish winter war commemorative medal with it's original paper bag carrying the awarded mans name. 

 

It's awarded to a German freiwillige Helmut A. Lemke and as far as I've been told only 18 Germans received the commemorative medal and Helmut was one of them. 

 

Is there any way to find any more information about Helmut A. Lemke?

As I have understood there sometimes might be information to find at Ancestry.de. But since my skills in German language are very limited and a membership isn't free I ask the community here for help.

Without a date and place of birth it might be difficult. If you have those details then you could hire a researcher to see if his personnel file exists in the Bundesarchiv Berlin (Enlisted Men) or Freiburg (Officers). As long as he has been dead for 10 years or more or 100 years have passed from his date of birth then the researcher should be able to access it.

Thanks for your reply. 

Hopefully I will get access to a medal roll of winter war medals for foreigners in a near future. I know that Swedish and Norwegian volunteers are on the list. So I hope the few Germans are also included. 
 

The list should at least contain a birth date of recepients. So I hope to come further with the research.
