A transportation company will be combined from the different transportation formations under the command of Hanko Group and military administration. This transportation company will be under the command of Hanko fort. At the time being the number of the trucks and transportation platoons, will be determined by the available equipment. The number of these must be reduced by concentrating and supervising the transportations. Also the garage crews must be reduced, when the maintenance tasks will get lower. The supplies for the transportation platoons must be taken care of by the staff company.

Commander of Navy: General Lieutenant V. Valve

Chief of Staff: Commodore S. Sundman.

459, Picture 1

- Some kind of a remains can be found from the structure 459. However it has been covered rather effectively, making the finding of this one a matter of pure luck in the terrain. What is interesting is that it seems that the structure number 459 was also given to a structure, which can be from the Vitsand area. So there is two structures with identical number.

- The structure seen from the opposite direction. The nearby rock has been clearly used for the structure and it has functioned as one of the structure walls. This has not been the planned forty men accommodation area, but some smaller dugout or a shelter.
