In the night between April 19/20 the German connect up one mooring line from the stern of Aachen and into the west corner of the ore pier in Narvik. Approx. at 04.00 hours they open the botton valve and abandon the ship. At 09.00 hours they observed
between the snow shower that the stern rope was broken and the ship have turn around 180 degree on the anchor chain and have a list to starboard. Next time the weather clearing up at 09,45 hours she was gone.
They use a small tug for the work with the stern rope, have you any idea what the name on this tug was.??
