Hi

A picknick.

picknick 1a: The S 28 crew
picknick 3a: The S 28 crew being served coffie by finish Lottas?
picknick 5a: By a lake with more crews? The S 28 crew to the left.

I think the photos shows a trip made to the Vihti lake on 25 July. The 1 S-Ftl had lost two comrades when swiming in the sea and all swiming was forbidden. The picknick was a compensation for that. Picknick 1a might show the S 28 crew after the funeral in full dress. Behren writes (page 52) that two from the S 40 crew were burid in Helsinki. Could that have been the two drowning victims?

Hi,

Where there two drownings in the S 40 crew or were the deaths from something else? Or is Behrens wrong about S 40?

Thank you Urs,

The next trip for S 28 in Finland was to a nice house. It looks like it was only S 28 that was there. I have seen a photo of this Place in a 2 S-Ftl album as well. What where when is it?

Villa 1a: S 28 with the Leopard Wappen. The flag makes the place look official.
Villa 2a: Probebly S 28 from the other side.
Villa 3a, 4a, 5a: The house. Looks newly built.
Villa 6a: The staff. Looks like a mix of nurses, Lottas, kitchen staff and civilans.
Villa 7a: The album mann washing his shirt for the dinner with the girls. There is something written on the stone.
Villa 8a: The dinner.

Hello, Alo

One question and one comment. Can you check if the flag in photo Villa 1a has a swallowtail or a coat of arms? In one of the war diaries of Helsinki Navy base it is written on 20. July that "it must be reminded that swimming in Pohjoissatama is forbidden." Pohjoissatama is north from Katajanokka that had much of naval infrastructure, like piers, yards, barracks. Is it possible that the drownings were for example from minesweepers?

Hi Jari,

The flag looks like a standard finish flag without tails.

I have added two Vihit lake pages from an S 103 photo album and the page from Behrens book with the funeral. I think the two are connected but I have not got any proof.
The funeral photos are realy from Helsinki showing the Sandudd cematery. You can see the Chapel in the back ground.

Hi

I think I found the names on the two drowned men. Link: http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/2013/helsinki_kriegsgraeberstaette_frdhf-hietaniemi_wk2_finn.html

Matrose Walter Schneider, 15 July 1941
Matrose Walter Kreuzberg 23 or 24 July 1941

I do not know if they were on a Schnellboot ( S 40?) or on any other boat.

Hello

I have identified the villa. It is a restaurant and accomodation building of the Finnish Tourist Association (Suomen Matkailijayhdistys) located in island Stormälö in Parainen (Pargas). The building was completed in 1941. Today the place is hotel and restaurant Airisto Strand. In their history page http://airistostrand.fi/index_svenska.html is a video clip from 1956 that shows the building at 1:20 minutes and a couple of photos of the building.

So, the "where" has been found out, for "when" you have to check when S 28 was stationed in the west, also in Turku or Saaristomeri area.

The S 28 was with the 2 S-Ftl from the 22 June to 1 July 1941. It must be from that time.

Hello,

Glad to be of help. I was thinking the flag in picture Villa 1a. The Midsummer day is also the Day of the Finnish Flag. The flag is hoisted on Midsummer's eve at 6 PM and flown through the night until 9 PM the next day. Midsummer was always celebrated on 24.6. till year 1954. So could this be on the evening of 23.6. (after 6 PM) or, more likely, on 24.6, also the day before the Kap Tahkona operation?

Jari

Edited the toughts of the dates.
