REPORT OF THE ACTIVITIES OF KULO SECTION ARTILLERY, PART IV

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

June 1941 to December 1941

- The enemy activity in Kulo section didn’t cause any mentionable damage. There were very few casualties or wounded. Commander B. Hjelt was wounded. The equipment didn’t suffer any damage. The firing was very limited and it seemed that the enemy was saving its ammunition. However before the enemy retreated, in two weeks time they shot about 1 500 grenades per day to the mentioned area.

- This kind of firing was mostly concentrated to the fire control positions and battery positions. It was noted, that even 50% of the enemy ammunitions could be defective and didn’t explode. It even happened once, that from a hundred ammunitions, only four exploded.

- Our own artillery fired a total of 28 562 shots to the enemy side. This figure does not include the shots fired by the ten direct firing guns. These guns were under the command of infantry commander.

- Memories from the past still peaks out from under the junk.

- The other side, which most likely has contained the entrance. Whatever was here is certainly damaged to such a degree, that it's nearly impossible to say anything certain. The front side contains a large pit, which probably were the interiors of this position. Today the pit is full of junk.

- This position is a difficult one and cannot be found from the fortification cards for some reason. There are also no notes about this position in the descriptions from 1955.

- The stones, which were used to reinforce the position are nicely visible and are covered with moss.

- No enemy is coming from that direction anymore.
