Almost overlooked it. But on the page https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/halloween-scary-battles/ there is a small line of blue text. 

A closer look reveals that these are GPS coordinates. 

 

The first one appears at the top of the page, just below the picture linking to the YouTube vid.

On the left-hand side, in small letters, you will see this: 43°25'22.4"N 2°43'22.4"W

 

If you enter these coordinates in Google Maps, it will take you to a Tapas-bar right next to a football field in the town of Bermeo in Northern Spain (Northeast of Bilbao): 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/43°25'22.4"N+2°43'22.4"W/@43.4227682,-2.7227235,18.58z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.4228889!4d-2.7228889

 

To see the second one, scroll down all the way to the bottom of the page. 

There, just above the button "DISCUSS ON THE FORUM", you will find this one: 43°36'54.1"N 116°12'08.3"W

 

If you enter these coordinates in Google Maps, it will take you to a crossroads in the middle of Boise, Idaho: 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/43°36'54.1"N+116°12'08.3"W/@43.61503,-116.2023096,19.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.6150278!4d-116.2023056

 

Yesterday, I also saw another such set of location coordinates on the same page, this was at 51°09'29.8"N 0°10'06.1"W

That one takes you to London's Gatwick airport, to the outer circle of the satellite terminal there: 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/51°09'29.8"N+0°10'06.1"W/@51.1582778,-0.1705498,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d51.1582778!4d-0.1683611

 

What's the story with these links, why are they there, does anyone know? 

Given the US cruiser Boise, I can well imagine the second link ;-) yet what about the others?!!
