Lunna Kirk and East Lunna Voe with Lunna House in the distance. On the other side of the narrow spit of remote land that forms Lunna Ness is West Lunna Voe.
The area’s remoteness made it ideal as the initial base of the ‘Shetland Bus’ before it’s base was moved to Scalloway.

    Thank you very much for telling us about the Shetland Bus that aided the Norwegian resistance in WW2 – I didn’t know anything about these hazardous night voyages and the brave men who carried it on for over four years. I knew a little about the Norwegian resistance from friends of Bill and Brenda Lewis – Leif and Solveg Valentisen – Leif was involved in it for 4 years and told Patricia and I a bit about what he had been doing and why they held England in such high esteem. Until tonight I had no idea how the Resistance procured its weaponry and thanks to your photograph and comments I now know a lot more. Thank you !!

    Thanks Alan for an introduction to the Shetland Bus. What an incredible story of very brave people who made an enormous contribution to the defeat of Germany, selflessly and still remembered today. It must have made the hairs stand up when you realised the BLESMA group had arrived just before you on the D Day weekend. Never to be forgotten. Xxx
