The confirmed 122nd dividend of the Soviet Army invaded Finland at the beginning of the Winter War on November 30, 1939. Its purpose was to proceed through Lake Kemijärvi to Rovaniemi and from there on to Tornio. The goal was to cut off Finland's important land connection to Sweden. Finland had nothing to send but a small number of troops against the enemy. The help was provided by the Infantry Regiment 40, commanded by Jaeger Major Armas Perksalo, which was a poorly equipped replenishment force.
