Geocache Description:

NESTE RALLYN AIKAAN PÄÄSY HARJULLE ON RAJOITETTUA!

ACCESS TO HARJU IS RESTRICTED DURING NESTE RALLY FINLAND!

Pienehkö kätkö talvisodan pommituksissa kaatuneiden muistomerkillä.

Small cache at memorial monument for fallen on Winter War bombings.


Harju toimi ilmatorjunta-asemana sekä talvi- että jatkosodissa, jolloin myös sen päällä olevat puut kaadettiin näkymän parantamiseksi. Itse tykki on pystytetty paikalle 2001 ja on merkiltään ruotsalainen Bofors. Talvisodan aikana Boforsin tykeillä ammuttiin alas ainakin 128 neuvostoliittolaista konetta ja useita muita vaurioitettiin niin, että todennäköisesti osa niistä tippui alas ennen tukikohtaan pääsyä. Talvisodan loppuvaiheissa Suomessa oli käytössä noin 100 Boforsin tykkiä.

Purkki on pieni metallinen rasia.

Harju was used as an anti-aircraft defense base in the Winter- and Continuation Wars, which also was why trees on top of the hill were brought down to improve the view. The cannon itself was erected in 2001, model is Swedish Bofors. During the Winter War Bofors guns shot down at least 128 Soviet planes and several other were damaged so badly that probably some of them fell down before reaching their home base. There were about 100 Bofors guns during the final stage of Winter War.

Cache itself is a small metal box.
