Re: History Quiz redux #5
I agree with the others that the British Destroyer is HMS Hardy (5x4.7" & flat bridge front but the German Destroyer is probably one of the 1936 type (shorter & wider funnels). The models are Neptun and the Z17-19 most likely since 3 were sunk at the second Battle of Narvik. However, if I had to choose a particular ship, I first thought of Wilhelm Heidkamp (flagship) and he (Germans called warships he)was sunk by a torpedo from Hardy in the first Battle of Narvik but he was Z21 and, unlike the model , had a clipper bow from new, so it could not be that one. I await Bob's solution to the problem...
