Finland – Icebreaker Tarmo

The Tarmo is an icebreaker that served Finland for many decades. The Tarmo was built in 1907. She was armed and served in World War II. She is currently moored at a nautical museum in Kotka, Finland. She is often reported to be the world's oldest surviving icebreaker, although Russian Angara icebreaker predates Tarmo by at least 7 years and also survives to this day as a floating museum. Another Finnish icebreaker, built in 1963, was named after the original Tarmo. This card was sent to me by Merja My Friend.
