John R. SCOLLAY, do you know him?
« on: Thursday 01 May 14 20:04 BST (UK) »
Hello,
John R. SCOLLAY, was one of four survivors from the sinking of the Bay Fisher in February 1941.
His place of birth was Orkney, born around 1918, and was living at No4 Sleigh Drive, Edinburgh in 1940.
Would like to find a picture of him and pass on details of his time on the Bay Fisher to family members.
Many thanks,
Brian

You could also try the Orkney FHS and the Orkney Archives, both are online :)

looks like he may have been born in westray, there is a john robert scollay born 1918  westray, orkney family history society is your best bet, they have a facebook page where you can post queries if you,re not a member. there,s also a facebook page for orkney past and present,as your j r scollay is in the quite recent past there may be people still around who know of his family
