Arrival of Radar Equipment on Unst - 1955

The photographs below show the arrival of some of the radar equipment on Unst in 1955. The main landing site was alongside the pier at Baltasound. Landing Craft were used as they were able to make use of the slip built by Marines during the Second World War - the slip was intended for use by Flying Boats.
