A History of RAF Skaw (AMES 56) – The Out-Post – Issue 9

By the time Issue 9  of the Outpost came out the radar station had been operational for a year, The main Chain Home was still not ready and the watch-keepers were still using the wooden huts and smaller towers at the eastern end of Lambaness. Construction work was continuing in the winter months and the servicemen posted into the station would be able to see the sixe of the towers which would soon be supporting the main antenna.
