AIR COMBAT ON 5TH OF NOVEMBER 1941, PART I
- At 13:45 to 15:00 four Curtiss planes performed an surveillance mission. In the air combat on the east side of Hanko Cape against six enemy fighters type I-16 and I-153 one of the enemy planes was shot down and one was seen smoking while heading towards the airfield. One of our own planes was shot down and plunged to the sea. This was the plane CU-567, piloted by the Second Lieutenant A.
- Next to the dirt road, which starts from the present day Hanko - Hyvinkää road and leads towards the structure 201, is some dugout remains.
- One of the remains.
- More dugout remains right next to the road.
- A single man shelter.
- Additionally there is a massive pit in the area. The edges of the pit can be still seen in the forest. The structure is a way too big to be a dugout. One option is that the dressing station, which is marked to the structure 201, was actually located here. It hasn't been a dugout, but a tent or some other temporary structure, which has been the dressing station. Looking at the size of the structure, it would have been suited to serve as a dressing station.
- The edge of the structure.
