I usually suck at these quizes but this time I might have a little advantage due to my nationality.

I say it's KMS Lützow.

The uniforms look more like USN uniforms, though I'm no expert on ships.  I think it was a pre-war built ships.  I don't think war time built ships often had many port holes.

Not Lutzow, she had 2 turrets each with 3 x 11inch

This apears to be 2 turrets each with 6-8" forward firing.

Not Portland either, she had a starboard astern torpedo hit. Maybe same/similar class.

Right ship, wrong time frame. That is still an all white paint job there, so that places this pre-war at least. Looking it up again, this is the damage the ship suffered in 1933 after being rammed by SS Silver Palm off Point Sur.

I was so full of myself in finding the picture I ASSUMED it related to Savo Island.

I spent more time on reading about her Captain at the time.

I have no idea about what ship that is, but doesn´t the hole look a lot like as if it had been made by a collision at right angle?

It does look more like a collision.  I think it was from the Silver Palm.  The Silver Palm must have been pretty badly messed up.

Was the all white colour scheme an indication that the ship was from a neutral power, post Dec 41 ofcourse?

I wouldn't be surprised if the Silver Palm was relatively unscathed. Think Stockholm vs the Andrea Doria.
