Hunter was beached then sunk. So, I'd agree it is likely Hunter
You're right TiredOldSoldier!
It is the HMS Hardy:
H.M.S.Hardy · Scuba Diving And Shipwrecks: Submerged
The HMS Hunter wasn't found until a year ago, she sank at some 300 metres in the middle of the fjord:

The HMS Hardy was pretty much intact until the late sixties when the rest was broken up and removed. During the sixties my father was stationed at Ramsund Naval Station across the fjord. A couple of times we went across the fjord, three or four eleven years old boys, in a rowing boat. I remember the eerie feeling at the wreck, except for the cluck of the waves against the wreck there was complete silence.
Over to you!
I expect this to last very little if a "certain gentleman" sees it.

Lutzow the unfinished fourth Hipper class cruiser.
You beat me by an inch there Chief, I was just about to post the answer:

But I don't have to figure out a new qiuz, at least..
Correct though by the time this photo was taken she may already be Petropavlovsk as her original name was given to Deutchland at war start. (she also managed to collect some more names (Tallin, Dniepr and PKZ 122) before finally being scrapped in 1959.
Your turn !
At the time of that picture, she may have been simply "L."
I will take over and keep this ball rolling.
Who is this?
I've seen that slab-sided vessel, let me see if I can hunt it down.
Correct! I figured I hadn't remembered seeing any Seaplane tenders (one word or two?), so why not? Your up.
The ship in the background. As long as you guess the class, that's good enough.
Japanese destroyer, Matsu class.
I agree with you and, from the shape of the foremast, would guess it's a ship from the second (Enoki) group.
TOS has scored a hit. It's Hatsuzakura.
Two sisters, side by side for the last time.
There are not that many pre-dreadnought with two funnels and single guns in secondary turrets, My guess would be two King Edward VII class after WW1, this rules out the lost Britannia and King Edward VII so we are left with Dominion, Hibernia, Commonwealth, Africa, New Zeeland and Hindustan.
British built, yes, but here under another ensign.
I'm revising size downwards as the main turrets look like single mounts so Norge and Eidsvold ? The setting looks right.

Antiquated and slow, they were sunk during the first minutes of the Battle of Narvik.

Over to you!
