CABLE BOX REMAINS

 

REPORT OF THE ACTIVITIES OF KULO SECTION ARTILLERY, PART III

(History of the Hanko Group, T-22005, Military Archives of Finland)

June 1941 to December 1941

- The old equipment of Kulo section worked very precisely and accurately, when thinking of its age. Also the artillery ammunitions worked well, but at first there were some defective detonators, which caused the ammunition to explode inside the gun barrel. At those times, some crew were wounded, but the artillery guns didn’t suffer any damage. Later there were no explosions inside the barrel, because the defective detonators could be identified and removed from use.

- This remain is located right in the yard of a summer cottage and we would have missed it without an invitation from the residents of the summer cottage, so a big thank you for them.

- These concrete remains were cable boxes from where communication cables were pulled from one location to another. For example this cable box in the area of Vimonböle was connected to the cable boxes in the areas of Gyttjeviken and Halsnäs.

- The history of the Hanko Group, which can be found from the Military Archives of Finland, contains a detailed map, showing the locations of these cable boxes and to where the cables were connected.
