Saxa in 1960 – Article by Mal Smith

The article below was published in the 1998 Spring Issue of ”The Saxa Voice” - the Station Magazine. Mal Smith was posted in as a cook in the early years and later returned to Shetland after leaving the RAF. He spent a number of years in the Shetland community and was very active on the sporting scene, especially rugby. Although he now spends a large amount of time outside Shetland he does return frequently

The photo top right on the first page was wrongly titled at the editing/printing stage and should read "WO Tasker with the Cooks"

I believe tthis excellent article gives a good insight into life on the base for the young serviceman fifty years ago. (Left click on pictures to enlarge).
