Stash of hundreds of German documents from "Gebirgs-Jäger-Regiment 206" found in a ventilation shaft in Hanko harbour.

A stash of at least hundreds of German documents dating from April to June 1944 was found in a ventilation shaft by an electrician working in Hanko harbour. The documents are in very good condition despite beeing over 75 years old.
