    Here are some pictures of the former MKB 6/511 Skrolsvik on the norwegian isle of Senja.
    Originally a german coastal battery with 4 15 cm S.K. C/28.
    Together with the 40,6 cm S.K. C/34 battery at Harstad, it closed of the northern entrance to the strategically important city of Narvik.
    It was used by the norwegian forces after WW2 and was finally decommisioned in 1989.
    It then became a museum which closed down after a few years and now the guns and bunkers are left to te elements.
    If you ever make it across the arctic circle, it is well worth a visit.

    As for your shell.
    It might have some norwegian stamps, and the paint might not be original, but that's an original, WW2 german made Kriegsmarine shell; i'd say excellent piece and good value for money.
    Now you just have to find the Flare (Leuchtgeschoss) and the HE with nosefuze.
    And the case of course....

    Thank you! Very interesting stuff. I got another today. Probably the only two in Canada. It’s the impart fuse type.
    will post separately.

    Got the plug out no fuse. Ah well.

    Thanks for the pics Zünder. I was just in Norway a year ago. Shame I missed that one. I was with my wife so could only do so many forts....haha
    i did do the Adolf Kanon Battery at Harstead, the installation at Evenes near Narvik. Then south I did Oscarbourg and Kjoken(not spelled right I know) I loved every minute of that country. Would love to go back by myself and explore some the hard to access coastal bases.

    I just bought the impart type today.
