Cable box remains, Picture 1

- This is exactly similar concrete remain which can be found from the Vimonböle area. 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 Vitsand was connected to the cable boxes in the areas of Leksvall and Odensö. There was also cable running from this box to the command position of 459. 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.
