World War 2 Radio Play and Scapa Flow HQ

We have published our WW2 radio play on our wiki. 
We hope you enjoy it!
Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

Meanwhile back at operations HQ we annotated our map of Scapa Flow with the help of Anne Bignall from Scapa Flow Landscape Partnership. We even added the route we will be taking next week on the MV Graemsay. Here is hoping for good weather!

We found out just how well defended Scapa Flow was in many different ways. There are very few photographs of Scapa FLow at this time. Can you guess why?
There were lots of anti-aircraft balloons deplyed as well as nets and cables stretched across the entrances to the Flow. We will be visiting one of the places where the forces were stationed next week - the battery at Ness near Stromness.
We will post some photographs of our boat trip and our visit to Ness battery here on our blog

  1. The WWII radio play was really good!Good effect with the air raid siren...and gives a sense of what life was like during the War.
    Scapa flow is interesting and we got a book about that at Xmas time though Euan is taking another book in for Book day - one I'm glad he stated reading as it is good for imagination!
