of Finnish factory worker Emil Kalske, who lived half a mile from the station. Next

train no. 293 driven by Hugo Jalava across the RussoFinnish border bound for
Terijoki. Accompanying him were Shotman, Rahja and a third Finn, Pekka
Parviainen. Jalava played out a charade with Rahja: 'Where are you going at

resupplied with food and fresh milk; and that this second delay later forced the
Russians to spend an entire night in a German hotel in Sassnitz, while waiting for
the next ferry to ...

Vladimir Bonch-Bruevich, chairman of the government's “intelligence operations"

Petrograd, a train of former imperial carriages was secretly assembled. Bonch-
Bruevich sent two teams of agents unknown to each other (okhranka style) to
