    Greetings from the north of Norway. The clip of Warspite at 3:20 show her just outside of Hamarøy in Nordland. The mountaintop to the right in the shoot is called Tilthornet. This position is about 10 nautical miles south of the entrance to the Ofotfjord.

    I would love to know more about this partical clip. For instance the date of filming, if there is more of it, and who filmed it.

    Sinc. Tom Remi
