Hai

I don't know if you're involved in this.
There's an article in the current UBoot im Focus, Edition 14 about U481 and it's actions around the Gulf of Finnland in 1944 and the usage of "Grand Hotel".

Hello,

Thank you for the hint. I am not involved with this article but will certainly order a copy of the book.

Best, Jari

Hi all, here is a KTB of a boat that used the Finish bases.  When the Finish reached an armistice with the Russians the Germans immediately mined Finish waters.  http://uboatarchive.net/U-242/KTB242-3.htm

UBoot im Focus located "Grand Hotel" a few miles more south in this small "bay" in the middle of the island Nuokko. But in the arial Picture with the three submarines clearly shows it's north of that.

I live in the island of Stormälö in Parainen, Finland. It is remembered by the locals that there was a military base here during the war 1941-44. Several submarines used the bay of hotel Airisto as their base at least in 1941. These include U145, U144, U142. Some of the oldest women here remember being in parties and dancing in the base when they were young. They even visited the submarines. Below is a picture of U145 there.

On an interesting note, it was suggested a year ago that the Russians are running a secret naval base a few kilometres away and the Finnish military raided the place. Even the existence of small submarines were rumoured. So there is some strategic interest in the place... Below is a link to a New York Times story about that.
