The Salvage of the Murmansk (W206)

The Murmansk was a light cruiser build by the former USSR; while being towed to India to be scrapped her towline parted during a severe winterstorm. She drifted in that same storm for a few days untill she ran aground on the rocks close to the entrance of the port of the small town of Sørvær in Norway.
