Regarding XIIth Submarine Flotilla Memorial.
The 12th Submarine Flotilla consisted of X-class midget submarines. Their mission was to attack the heavy German warships – Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Lützow – based in northern Norway, in September 1943 in Operation Source. Tirpitz was heavily damaged but Scharnhorst and Lützow were not at their expected moorings. Almost all of the submarines were lost with their crews.
