Hello Pedro!

Another german recipient of the Orden der Weissen Rose was Generalleutnant Iwan Heunert. You can find a picture of him wearing the award in John R. Angolia's "For Führer and Fatherland - Military awards of the Third Reich" (1985).

Was this a very common award?
I have registered one lower rank officer that recieved this order: SS-Obersturmführer Willy Laqua (background from both Germany and Finland) head of SIPO in Kirkenes, Norway during the war.

Yes, it is. The correct rank of Feige however is Gen. d. Kav. This has been cleared up with original documents from him of 1941 signing with Gen. d. Kav. and with his "Wehrpaß" which was showing duly his promotion to Gen. d. Kav.

Gentlemen,

How about the Obersts and Kapt. z.S. Can you name the holders of the Order of the White Rose (Commander) who had these ranks?
Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Gentlemen,

Have you have any more findings of Germans being awarded the Commander's Cross of the White Rose of Finland?

Sincerely,
