Finnish Border Guard, shoulder insignia. Pair
Original Finnish Border Guard, shoulder insignia, unissued. Pair
Original, unissued Bear insignia of Finnish Border Guard.
These are sold as pairs. The bear looks always forward. Currently this is used only on left BDU sleeve.
This insignia was in use during WW2 and before. The borderjaegers were personal reserve for the Marshall Mannerheim, and were sent for the worst places, they were hard and battle proved experts of guerrilla warfare, superior scouts, specialist rangers and inventors of asymmetric tactics. They had perfect knowledge of the eastern border and most had some skill in russian language for some spying and interrogation.
Currently they are a National Security agency and watch over the borders of Finland, but have also many models responsibilities.
Most are quite uniform, but some minuscule difference of color or decorations are fairly common.
The pins are folded in for easier storage
