Defending St Kilda

£15.00

Description

Written by Ron Morris.

In this book, based on new research and archive photographs, Ron Morris tells the intriguing and little-known story of the role which St Kilda played in World War 1, including the establishment of a wireless station and Royal Navy base to monitor enemy movements in the North Atlantic.

In May 1918, a German U-boat entered Village Bay and opened fire, following which a gun was erected on St Kilda next to the Manse to respond to future attacks, although this was never used in anger.
