Finland & Aland - North by the sea
The Tarmo Museum Ship is an icebreaker that served Finland for many decades. She was built in 1907. She was armed and served during WW II. She is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving icebreaker. She was renamed Apu in 1963, because a new Tarmo the Second was built. Tarmo has the privilege of featuring on a Finish stamp earlier too. Once again these gems have been sent to me by Ella.
