Loch Ewe Naval base

In the dark days of 1941 and 1942 Loch Ewe was a heavily defended gathering point for Convoys to our Russian Allies. Here at Rubha nan Sasan there were 6 inch naval guns and search lights. The area was also defended by anti-aircraft batteries. The guns apparently never had to be fired in anger, no doubt due to the remoteness of this location.

Have you got a copy that the Russian Arctic Convoy Museum could use in our display for our Second World War Week in May?
