Tea on the Tirpitz

TOURIST attraction: the upturned and rusting hull of what was once the apple of Hitler's eye, the battleship Tirpitz, sunk by R.A.F. Lancasters (after an earlier attack by midget submarines and torpedo bombers) in Tromsoe Fjord in 1944.

It is visited by hundreds of people every year.

And now, I hear, the local Norwegian authorities are considering building a small refreshment pavilion on the hull.
