The Long-Range Reconnaissance of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Headquarters made more than 280 raids to the enemy's rear with the aims of capturing information, abducting enemy combatants, destroying enemy bases, disrupting traffic and communications. More than 600 men participated in the raids, supported by about 300 men and 150 women in staff, communication and maintenance tasks.
84 patrolmen and 2 lottas gave their all for the Fatherland.
The form of this monument design refers to the symbol of Tursaansydän
, which was the badge of the 4th Detached Battalion
. The central pattern of the stone is the emblem of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Headquarters, the Cross of Liberty, which over added the Lion from the state Coat of Arms.
