"Another one bites the dust"

Today we surveyed the Hanko harbour magazine to find more German WW2 documents hidden in the roof structures. Very exiting "and dusty" day :)


Despite our hard efforts it seems the treasure chest of the old ventilation shafts has now been exhausted. The result is some 800 documents relating to German Gebirgsjäger passing through Hanko, S. Finland in the spring of 1944. 

Some very interesting Soviet 1941-period "attic finds" have emerged in Hanko though. More on these tomorrow :)
