Marshal Mannerheim, being an experienced military leader, located the operational headquarters in the building of the central public school, located at a convenient distance from the Soviet front. Nearby, about 100 m from the headquarters, was the Communication Center. Due to the fact that the Center was located in a granite rock, it also served as a shelter from air attacks.
