German Sailors in Foreign Port, 0 - Mothers, 1

This class of German frigates (commissioned between 1994 and 1996) are primarily designed for anti-submarine warfare. The F218 Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (photo) arrived in Reykjavík harbor on a friendly visit Monday, docking at Midbakki pier with a its crew of 199 people.

A concerned mother called the police yesterday afternoon complaining about her daughter having been invited to a party on board the ship in the evening where there was supposed to be drinking, Fréttabladid reports. Apparently German marines had distributed invitations to Icelandic girls downtown earlier in the day. The police contacted the frigate’s superiors, who were outraged and ordered that no Icelanders were to be allowed on board in the evening.

Senior officers of the German frigate ordered a guard around the ship to prevent Icelanders from attending an on-board party. Girls as young as 14 had been invited to party with crew.
German Marines Invite Icelandic Teens to Party - it was a party invitation ploy.
Submarines are always silent and strange.
