Please Help Identify Location of Photos

Post  s3bpilot on Mon 24 Nov 2008 - 21:48

Please excuse my post in English. I'm Jerry Mason, the administrator of the U-boat Archive website. I am working with the son of a U-boat veteran who has sent me some photos of his father's wartime service. He doesn’t know the location or date and I am trying to help him with that. I have posted some of the photos at: Photos. If I can determine where the photos were taken that will narrow down the date as the coming and going of the U-boat (U-622) are known. I was hoping that someone here might recognize the port. Photos: 1 and 2 show the boat returning from an operation, 3 and 4 were taken from the boat while in a drydock, and 5 shows the loading of a torpedo. All the photos were taken between November 1942 and July 1943. The possible locations are Bergen, Trondheim, Narvik or Skjomenfjord. It is possible that the photos were taken at different times in different locations. Thanks and best wishes, Jerry

Email and pm sent.

Forgot to say that it's possible to pinpoint the date on the first two photos.
