The pictures below show some wintery scenes at RAF Saxa Vord and may bring back memories to those who spent Christmas in Unst. I will be doing another section with photos of Unst in the snow at a later date. (Left click on pictures to enlarge).
A few more recent shots of Lerwick - enjoy the festive season.
And finally, nothing to do with Saxa, courtesy of MOD:
The aim of this site is to preserve memories of RAF Saxa Vord for service personnel and local civilians. I spent 22 years in the RAF as a Fighter Controller and was at RAF Saxa Vord from November 1967 until March 1969. In 1988 I left the RAF and settled in Shetland and have lived here ever since.
I am always on the lookout for suitable material and would appreciate it if anyone can help out with photos and/or printable anecdotes. I am also anxious to ensure that the material on the site is accurate and would be grateful if anyone who notices mistakes, or believes that photos have been incorrectly credited, would contact me.
