75 years ago today, 12.11.1944 , the German battleship Tirpitz was sunk outside Tromsø in Northern Norway. 916 of its crew went down with her. R.I.P. Here is a few photos I took last autumn from the Tirpitz memorial on Håkøya where it sunk.
A few items from Tirpitz in my collection. The badges and the uniform breast eagle was found on the wrecksite by workers cutting up the ship late after the war.
