        There is little daylight now, so there are not many pictures from me at the moment.
        Here is CGV "Svalbard" on Tromsø strait yesterday afternoon more or less in darkness.

        Best wishes from

                Superb shots....!

                Valkyrien! A famous name in the Norwegian Navy as many might remember a former hurtigrute converted navy-ship also carried that name.

                  KNM "Otra"







                  Comment


                    I'm sure one of the two minesweepers which visited Kristiansund early this Tuesday morning, was KNM "Otra". Alongside the two were MTB (or what they are called in modern terms) KNM "Skudd".
                    Had to go to work, but around 10-ish came KNM "Otto Sverdrup", one of our new fregattes.
                    Almost the entire norwegian navy were in my homeport today, as part of the exercise "Flotex Silver 2010"

                            Now, I've been in old archives again, at my parents, and found a picture where I need some help to identify the vessel.
                            The vessel, as I'm told, came from the Royal Navy and was part of a NATO exercise as far back as 1976. Picture taken near our hut, cottage, summer house or whatever one calls it and we see the mountains in Trollheimen in the background.
                            So...., anyone want to take a guess at this one...?? (Can't see any ID-number on the hull)

                              Looks like the UK RFA Fort Austin or Fort Rosalie (ex Fort Grange)

                                I could very well agree with you, Jack.
                                But on my image from 1976, I don't recognise the shape of the bow spring and the stern is rounded. There's also a mast behind the funnel in my image.
                                Other than that, it looks very alike RFA Fort Austin.
                                I suspect it has been rebuilt and modernized over the years, because as I can understand, she's still in service...?
                                Thank you for taking time to help me out here, Jack!!!!

                                EDIT:
                                Then again, it's amazing what one find out when starting to dig into interesting things: RFA Fort Austin were commisioned in May 1979, so then it could not have been anchored near our summer house in 1976.
                                Could it be that my mother remembered wrong and ment 1979? There were some navy traffic in our fjords prior to the huge NATO exercise "Teamwork '80" which took place here....
