    Thanks for posting this! I've always had an interest in this ship due to my grandfather having been ordered out in order to help camouflage the ship while anchored in Fættenfjorden (I'm guessing early 1942)... 70th "anniversary" next year I see.
    I actually took a trip there last year or so and took a lot of photos of the place where it anchored up etc. It took some really MASSIVE slabs of concrete to keep this ship in place, that's for sure! Maybe I should post them here?

    Yes, a thread within this forum would be a good idea

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I posted this yesterday, but considering the chap flew on all 3 raids to sink the Tirpitz, it deserves being posted here as well.
