Thanks for your most interesting site. I worked in the Shetlands around 1967 with Decca Overseas Projects operating a monitoring station at Dunrossness and later went overseas with Lab Navigation where I eventually ended up in Australia where I settled down. I've never been back to the UK but hope to return to Lerwick before I get too old to enjoy the trip - and when the economy improves!! Thanks again for renewing old memories. Kindest Regards Anthony Legg

Hello Anthony,

Many thanks for your kind comment. I'm glad that you enjoy the blog. I felt that most news or shipping arrivals around Shetland deserved it's own "space", and i hope to improve it as i go along.

I'm pleased this blog has rekindled memories for you and i hope in time you will enjoy your return to Shetland in the future!

Best Regards
Richard Paton
