About Maj. Gen. Ruben Lagus

Ernst Ruben Lagus oli suomalainen jääkärikenraalimajuri. Lagus toimi huoltopäällikkönä talvisodassa, sekä myöhemmin jatko- ja Lapin sodassa muun muassa Panssaridivisioonan komentajana. Sotapalveluksensa ansiosta hänet nimitettiin Mannerheim-ristin ritariksi numero 1.

Ernst Ruben Lagus was a Finnish Major General. Lagus was one of the Finnish Jaeger troops trained in the volunteer Royal Prussian 27th Jäger Battalion. During the Winter War he was in charge of the supplies of the troops fighting in Karelian Isthmus. In the Continuation War he was first the commander of Jääkäriprikaati (Jaeger Brigade) and later Panssaridivisioona (Armoured Division). He was the first soldier to be awarded the Mannerheim Cross on 22 July 1941.
