Sandwick Orkney
« on: Wednesday 12 February 14 12:10 GMT (UK) »
Hi I am trying to contact anyone who lived near or knows of Sandwick on Orkeney during the 1960's, I am interested in the R.A.F Balloon Station that was active there.

Best regards,

Wayland

You could try

Orkney Image Library (http://www.orkneycommunities.co.uk/imagelibrary/) - you'll need to post a photo to go on the main site but you could also post a query without a photo in the Guestbook section, though new content is added rather slowly at the moment.

And yes the Sandwick you want is in Orkney, not Shetland.

Hope this helps
