    Will I need to wear my waistcoat with all the patches and pins (it's seriously bloody heavy) or can I wear a lighter one?

    Just back from a couple of days up by, meeting with friends. A place I hadn't previously been was the Boyndie Visitor Centre. It's on part of the site of the former Boyndie RAF base. There's several covered picnic areas, an indoor cafe and various small shops but also a small but interesting exhibition about the Banff Strike Wing, including the top of a mast brought back from a Norwegian fjord by a Mosquito that got a wee bit too low during an attack. Well worth a visit.

    Dallachy

    Portsoy this year took a wander on the Sunday up the coast route to Lossiemouth via Scottish harbours are us a plenty.
    Came across the disused airfield at Dallachy and the WW2 memorial to the crews lost from the raids on German shipping hiding in the Norwegian fjords including the strike commands biggest loss in 45 when 9 Beaufighters failed to return from a raid on Forde fjord.
    Having just returned from a voyage up the North Sea and up the Norwegian coast to Nordkapp It brings home to me poignantly the sacrifice these young airmen took over wild seas at night .Many of these men from Australia and New Zealand.

    One may be able to attend some portion of this event. I have friends who have recently moved home from Shetland to Portsoy. I could perhaps cadge a bed for a couple of nights so that I don't have to lodge with the hoi polloi.

    Best way to do it. Then nip down, assess the masses and visit as appropriate

    Maybe from the road behind the camp site, looking down on it, a good pair of binoculars should reveal all
