    This should be easy...
    Simple question first, Where is this?
    More about when and what and why later.

    So, to make it easier, something dramatic happened here in this "sound".
    What happend?
    When?
    Name the little town and the sound.
    Name the ship.

    I think the story (and the place) can be found in this wikipedia article

    German cruiser Blücher

    Had a bit of help from the missus who happens to be a (nazi)Germany enthusiast. She had a hunch about this. Google image search phrase was "ww2 ship sunk norway germany"

    Well done Lurvio.
    Blücher sank here in Drøbak Sound in 1940, when Germany invaded Norway.
    Now Drøbak is a lazy summer town with a great aquarium.
    This is at the entrance of the Oslo fjord, quite narrow here.

    I first posted the mermaids also, but removed them, that would have been to easy :)

    No problem Ragnar, happened to me many times also . . :eek:

    But thanks anyway [​IMG]. That's the spirit of this thread, try to give the answer yourself or helping your buddies with a seen clue . . :)

    About the Claro country list, I discovered that too, but it was to long to be any good, so had to "read" the other clues from the pics . . :idea:

    Btw, anybody seen some clues in the new pics . . :?:

    Good Luck..!!
    Angel

    PS - Or some more pics needed . . :D

    Hmm, I see a few things to google, an old warehouse, lots of cranes, a passenger terminal.
    Maybe that can lead to harbor with some passenger lines indicated on the map?
