Wings Over Wick
Mrs Jean Murray,
I remember the air fight over Scapa, with fighters from Wick Airport taking part, which took place on March l6th l940. I went out with an RAF man that night and had taken a walk to a castle somewhere out of town, to the north side I think from where we watched the air fight, with shells bursting everywhere. My companion said, “Our lads will be swearing tonight”.
The RAF personnel must have been very honest people, as I happened to lose my watch on the High Street when the wrist strap broke, so I didn't have any hopes of seeing it again. After a couple of days or so, I mentioned it to my employers, Urquhart at North Bank House, and they advised me to try the Police Station. When I went there, there it was, and still working. The policeman said it had been handed in by an RAF man, so how's that for honesty?
