PREFACE. 



>N presenting - to the Shetland public a work of such 
great historic interest as SbetlaUD'S IROll Of IbOilOUC 
atlt) IROll Of SeCVtCC I feel that the Prefatory 
Note calls for something more than the usual introduction 
which suffices for a less pretentious production. The ultimate 
aim of the volume — to treat a great subject in a manner 
worthy of it, and fashion an unique and intimate memorial of 
the hero sons of Shetland — was a task so great, attended 
with so many difficulties, that a short narrative of the creation 
of the book now in the reader's hands will assist the public 
to estimate the labour involved and enable them the more 
correctly to judge to what extent the difficulties of the task 
have been surmounted. 

The compilation of the information contained in the 
following pages was a problem which it was eventually found 
could only be solved by the most laborious and painstaking" 
methods. The first effort to secure the data was made in 
February, 1919, when a circular, asking" for the necessary 
information and photographs, was posted to every person on 
the Roll of Voters for Shetland ; but, beyond showing- that 
the work would meet with widespread approval, the responses 
simply demonstrated the necessity for a personal application to 
every dwelling house in the Islands if it were seriously intended 



viii PREFACE. 

that the book should be anything- like accurate and complete. 
This expensive and laborious method was accordingly under- 
taken, and the results amply justified all that it involved. A 
total of 560 photographs was secured for reproduction purposes, 
and some 3600 names of sailors, soldiers, and airmen, were 
entered for the Roll of Service. This represented many 
months' work, to be followed by careful tabulation and classifi- 
cation of the entries from the various districts. 

When the collection of the information had been completed, 
proof-prints of the Roll of Honour and Roll of Service were 
sent to 36 correspondents throughout the Islands, intimation 
of this being given by advertisement, so that relatives of 
deceased and those interested had an opportunity to revise the 
entries. Every effort has therefore been made to ensure the 
completeness and accuracy of the work ; and the method of 
final revision of the proofs removes from the editorial staff the 
onus of responsibility for any omission or mistake. 

While it will be generally conceded that the majority of 
the photographs have been well reproduced, a number of the 
others are not so satisfactory. This is owing 1 to the nature of 
the portraits supplied. Several were altogether unsuitable for 
reproduction, but, in consideration of the wishes of relatives, 
no photograph was refused. The consequence is that enlarge- 
ments have had to be made from groups, snapshots, and old 
and faded cards. The printing - , which throughout was done in 
the Shetland News Offices, g-ave no trouble when good blocks 
were being dealt with; but it was impossible to obtain equal 
results from bad portraits. 

Realising- the great responsibility of the undertaking, I 
invited a Committee of gentlemen, consisting of Messrs J. M. 
Goudie, J. W. Robertson, R. D. Ganson, E. S. Reid Tait, 



PREFACE. ix 

J. S. Tulloch, and Rev. W. Fotheringham, to consider and 
decide on several debatable points which arose. These gentle- 
men gave me very valuable help, for which I tender them my 
hearty thanks. The plan of "Shetland's Roll of Honour and 
Roll of Service " is that approved by them. The Roll of 
Honour is arranged alphabetically, with the exception of the 
slight displacement necessary to ensure relatives appearing on 
the same page, and the case of one photograph of a man who 
died while the work was in the press. The list of men of 
whom no photographs were available follows. The Roll of 
Service has been arranged in the twelve districts for which 
there are Parish Councils in the Islands, with sub-divisions in 
the case of the more populous areas. Men outwith the Islands 
have been included in their native Parishes, but a special section 
is added with the names of those whose precise local connection was 
not stated. A list of late entries and "Women on Service" 
completes this part of the Work. In each case the list is 
alphabetical, except that fathers and sons and brothers have been 
placed together, when their relationship was known. 

My best thanks are due to Mr J. J, Haldane Burgess, M.A., 
for the acrostic which appears on page xiii, and which he 
specially wrote for the volume. 

For invaluable assistance in the preparation of the work I 
have to record my indebtedness to Mr Geo. H. Burgess and Mr 
R. F. Inkster, both members of the staff of the Shetland News. 
I am also indebted to the various district correspondents for 
their very careful revision of the proofs, and to many other 
persons throughout the islands for help rendered in collecting the 
information.

SHETLAND HEROES. 



Silent ye lie in distant lands and seas, 
Heroes, whose names we trace with love and pride 
Endless our debt to you, who fought and died, 
That we might taste the sweets of life and ease. 
Long shall the voice of fame your deeds recall, 
And glory gild your names on storied page, 
Noble and brave as in the sea-kings' age, 
Defenders of fair freedom for us all. 
High on the shining scroll of bright renown, 
Emblazoned in the work wrought by your hands, 
Refulgent now the name of Shetland stands, 
On through long ages to be handed down : 
Ever shall thoughts of your victorious strife 
Stir Shetland's sons to greater, grander life.

THE FIGHTING FORCES. 



SHETLAND'S RECORD OF SERVICE in the fighting forces of the 
country, and the part the Islands played in the great World War of 1914-19, are 
so honourable that it is fitting they should be referred to, even though only in 
outline, in this Volume, which will be perused now with reverence and pride by 
young and old alike, and in future years by generations of Shetlanders yet unborn. 
It is but a short eighteen months since we were rejoicing that the tragic war had 
ended : when a great relief came to our incredibly weary fighting men and a 
great load was lifted from the minds of a sad and war-tired people. Yet this 
sudden removal of menace and dread of further sorrow did not cause us to forget 
the price that had been paid. That can never be forgotten : there are too 

many Shetland homes with the permanent memorial of some loved one killed by 
land or sea. 

The purpose of this narrative is to recall briefly the activities of Shetland 
in the days of the war, so that these may be known to all who come after us. 
It is not meant to be anything more. If it may seem that the great and heroic 
part played in the War by the men who were under arms is not in proper 
perspective alongside the far less important civilian activities referred to here, 
let the silent but eloquent answer 'be the pages and pages of photographs of 
the gallant men who laid down their lives for us, and the thousands of names 
of ethers who assisted to complete the task of those who had fallen and bring 
Victory to their country's cause. The story of the men who bore the heat and 
burden of the struggle — the men who held the trenches in the far-flung battle 
lines and maintained British admiralty of the seas — can never be told. That 
fearful story of discomforts, danger and death, of the unspeakable horrors of 
modern warfare, and, above all, of steadfastness, endurance and transcendent 
courage, the soldiers and sailors keep hidden in their hearts. 

From the very day of the outbreak of the War until long after the Armis- 
tice, the men of the Shetland Islands took their full share in the fight. On 
2nd August, 191 4, when Europe was on the verge of war, all Shetland Royal 
Naval Reservemen were called out, this being the first occasion in the history 
of the R.N.R. movement that an Admiralty edict had gone forth ordering the 
men to report at headquarters. The news of the calling out of the men deeply 
impressed everyone with the extreme gravity of the international situation. All 
over Shetland it created a sensation, for there was scarcely a district which did 
not have its quota of Reservemen. On 3rd August, 1914, a number of men 
belonging to the Shetland Companies the Gordon Highlanders (T.F.), were called 
out for special duty in Lerwick The same night A. Company got notice to 
embody at Headquarters at 3 p.m. next day, the men being ordered to take 



270 SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 

with them their kits and equipment. On 5th August, B. Company also was 
called out. During these three eventful days the town resembled a small armed 
camp. R.N.R. men arrived in hundreds, and the unwonted and significant 
sight of so many navy blue and khaki uniforms brought vividly home to the 
people the first impressions of war. On Thursday, 6th August, Lieut. -Colonel 
H. C. Evans, R.M.L.I., reached Lerwick on board the mail steamer, and im- 
mediately assumed command as O.C. Troops in Shetand. On the following 
day he delivered an address to the men at Fort Charlotte, informing them that 
they would be trained at Lerwick, and that the new naval force would be known 
as the Shetland Section, R.N.R. 

During the winter of 191 4-1 5 large numbers of the youth of Shetland 
enlisted — lads from the country joining the new Shetland Section, R.N.R., and 
those belonging to the town mostly entering the ranks of the local Gordons. 
These recruits, and also the men who had seen service in the Reserve or Terri- 
torials, were drilled and trained at Lerwick. The ranks of the Shetland Section 
rapidly swelled. Before February, 1 91 5, over 1000 men had enlisted, and in 
all a total of 1561 men joined. The strength of the Territorials was also 
materially augmented. Detachments of the latter had been formed into cable 
guards and sent to various places in the islands for the purpose of guarding 
cables where they entered or left the sea. 

The first men to leave Shetland were a detachment of 213 members of the 
old R.N.R., who embarked on the s.s. St. Rognvald on 26th October, 1914, en 
route for Portsmouth. In physique, training and ability these men were second 
to none, and being the first to leave their native isles on the great adventure 
their departure was an historic event. It is superfluous to say that the men 
got a send-off worthy of the occasion. In the early summer of 191 5 Shetland 
men began to leave for the naval depots and training camps. On 1st May of 
that year 56 men sailed on the s.s. St. Magnus for Chatham, via Aberdeen. 
The Territorials, to the number of 240, left Lerwick on 13th June on board the 
troopship Cambrai amid scenes of great enthusiasm. This was the first time 
in the history of the islands that a troopship had come for the special purpose 
of taking armed men away to war, and it was a memorable day for Lerwick. 
In July, 159 Shetland Section R.N.R. men embarked on the troopship Vienna, 
and from the summer of 191 5 onwards Shetland soldiers and sailors partici- 
pated actively in the War. The first draft of foreign service men belonging 
to the Territorials crossed to France early in the winter of 191 5, and were in the 
trenches some weeks ibefore Christmas. Each month saw their strength in 
the battle zones increasing, and in course of time there were men from Shetland 
in every branch of the Army and in every theatre of war — France and Flanders, 
Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Salonika, and, afterwards, in Russia and Italy, 
while they were on duty in British war vessels on every sea and in British 
merchantmen on all the ocean highways. At the outset the Territorials were 
too limited in number to be formed into a strictly local battalion, and this was 
equally impossible of achievement in the later years of the war. The majority 
of the soldiers, however, were attached to one or other of the Gordon battalions, 
a large number were in the Seaforths, and they were also to be found in the 
Black Watch, H.L. I., and other Scotch and English regiments. The Reserve- 
men and seamen, for their part, were scattered far and wide over the seven 
seas. The result of being represented in so many fighting regiments and on so 
many ships of war and merchant vessels, was that casualties soon began to be 
reported, and as the war intensified these steadily increased in number. 

The first time that the Territorials took part in major operations was on 
13th November, 191 6, in the Battle of the Ancre. Along with other Gordons 
they succeeded in storming Beaumont Hamel, but a heavy price was paid, and 
less than a fortnight later, news reached Lerwick that in that great battle no 
fewer than 16 Shetland Territorials had been killed and 22 wounded. This heavy

SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 271 

list of casualities came as a great shock to Lerwick, where every one of the 
killed and wounded was intimately known, and where, in the case of the killed, 
the loss was regarded more as a personal than as a national one. In the pro- 
longed and fierce Battle of Arras, in March and April, 1917, many more Shetland 
lads made the supreme sacrifice ; and right on until the end of the War they 
played a gallant part in every one of the battles, big and small, that took place 
until the enemy was overcome. Many fell during the great German onset in 
March, 1918, but they and the others who had been killed before them were more 
than avenged during the series of brilliant British victories which, between 
August 8th and the date of the Armistice, crumpled up the German armies with 
dramatic and unexpected suddenness. In all the other theatres of war 

Shetland soldiers fought valiantly alongside their brothers-in-arms, and there, 
too, many suffered and died. There is probably not a cemetery near the battle 
grounds of any single one of the many theatres of war that does not contain all 
that remains of some Shetland soldiers. 

It should be added that the first draft from the Shetland Companies was 
attached to the 51st Highland (Territorial) Division, and that Shetland soldiers 
made their greatest sacrifice in any one battle at Beaumont Hamel, in the 
storming of which the Highland Division earned undying fame. As the war 

went on, the " Famous 51st," respected and dreaded by the German Army, 
was always in the forefront where the fighting waged most fiercely, and it 
emerged from the great struggle with a glory all its own and a record of achieve- 
ment, service and sacrifice unequalled by any other Division in the British Army. 
In addition to the original foreign service Territorials, most of the other Shetland 
lads who joined the Army were drafted into the 51st, and the County has every 
reason to be proud of the fact that so many of its sons served and fought in the 
ranks of what was perhaps the most famous fighting Division, Allied or enemy, 
that took part in the Great War. 

In the aerial wing of the Army a number of young sons of Shetlanders 
rendered valued services as officers in the Royal Air Force. 

In a community where love of the sea is inherent, and where the ways of 
the waters are understood, it was natural that the majority of Shetland men 
decided to serve afloat. In addition to merchant seamen, who numbered 

approximately 3000 (including many hundreds of trained men belonging to the 
original R.N.R.), 1560 men joined the Shetland Section. Early in the war the 
younger men in the old R.N.R. were drafted to various types of war vessels — 
fighting ships, patrol, boarding, anti-U boat, or escort craft. As the Shetland 
Section men completed their training at the shore depots and gunnery schools, 
they, too, were called on to help man the warships and auxiliaries. In the 

latter years of the war the only men left were largely the older Reservemen, 
and about 350 of them were on patrol and look-out duty in the islands. The 
merchant seamen, of course, remained in the merchant service, and in sticking 
so devotedly and steadfastly to their post of duty a heavy toll of life was 
exacted, particularly during the time that Germany practised ruthless submarine 
warfare. No inconsiderable number of young Shetland men qualified as gun- 
layers, and in that and other capacities the general arming of all merchantmen 
scattered those men broadcast throughout the mercantile marine and auxiliary 
war craft. Few naval engagements took place without some Shetland ratings 
being- in them, and relatively few steamers were sunk that did not have a Shet- 
land seaman on board. The war developments at sea therefore had a very 
close and deeply personal interest for everyone in the islands, and the dangers 
attendant on keeping our shores inviolate and ensuring continuity of food supplies 
and communications were omnipresent and all too frequently demonstrated by 
casualties— casualties which, unlike those of the land war, meant death in nearly 
every case. Early sea training and natural ability imposed more than ordinarily 
hazardous duties on these Shetland Reservemen. They were invariably singled

out as the crews of small boats sent from the innumerable British patrol craft to 
board enemy or suspected vessels, and in the discharge of this special work it 
happened more than once that they had to contend with much more than the 
elements, dangerous though wind and sea so frequently were. It was a boat's 
crew of Shetlanders from H.M. auxiliary cruiser Dundee, who, on 16th March, 
1917, volunteered to board the German auxiliary cruiser " Leopard " (formerly 
the British steamer " Yarrowdale," captured by the raider " Moewe " in Decem- 
ber, 191 6). This boat was either sunk by the enemy's fire or the men got on board 
and then went down when the hostile ship was subsequently sunk by the 
"Dundee" and H.M.S. Achilles. In the official report of the fight, dated 
March 17, 1917, Commander S. M. Day, R.N.R., of the " Dundee," stated: 
— " With the utmost regret I have to report that . . . the boat's crew who 
volunteered to accept the extreme risk entailed by a boarding operation under 
such conditions, are missing." When H.M.S. Ramsey was sunk by the 
German armed fleet auxiliary steamer Meteor on 8th August, 191 5, she had 14 
Shetland men on board, eight of whom were killed or drowned, and of these 
eight men five belonged to the island of Whalsay. The above are two of many 
incidents of a very similar nature — incidents so numerous that it is impossible to 
recount them all here. In all the big sea fights, the Dogger Bank, Coronel, 
Falklands, and Jutland, and also at Zeebrugge, Shetland Reservemen played an 
honourable part, and, as in the case of the fighting on land, were strongly 
represented in every sector of the long, unmeasured ocean front where the British 
Navy and auxiliaries were maintaining ceaseless vigil. 

It will be seen from the Roll of Honour and Roll of Service that many 
Shetlanders attained to commissioned rank both in the Navy and Army, in addi- 
tion to those who held responsible positions as captains and officers in the 
Mercantile Marine. In these capacities all of them got the name of discharging 
their duties courageously and with determination, and in a manner which won 
the respect and confidence of the men whom they commanded. 

The awards for gallantry are numerous, but without doubt are not in pro- 
portion to the number of deeds which warranted official recognition. In a 
strictly local battalion in the Army there was more likelihood of bravery receiving 
its due reward than when men were scattered in small numbers in many 
battalions, as was the case with the Shetland soldiers, and many very brave 
deeds have been described and vouched for by soldiers who came through the 
war that should have been reported and rewarded. The same may be said in 
regard to Shetland naval ratings and seamen ; but these are omissions that 
cannot now be rectified. The decorations won by Shetlanders include the 
V.C. (awarded to the grandson of a Shetland proprietor), the Albert Medal 
(first-class), the D.S.O., M.C., D.S.C., D.C.M., D.S.M., M.M., M.S.M., etc. 
The Distinguished Service Order was principally awarded to Shetland officers 
in the senior service. A number of Shetland soldiers also won decorations, 
principally the Croix de Guerre, from Britain's Allies — France, and Belgium. 
Many, too, were " mentioned in despatches," and these three simple words 
were often all that was officially related of gallant individual exploits. Not a 
few of the minor honours were bestowed on Shetland gun-layers for deter- 
mined and successful engagements with German submarines when the odds were 
heavily against them. 

The above general reference to the services of the men who went forth 
from Shetland during the years of the Great War to fight for their country's 
cause, for Democracy, Freedom and Justice, may be fittingly concluded by 
quoting the statement made by Sheriff Menzies, O.B.E., at the civic welcome 
extended to Shetland's returned service men in the Territorial Drill Hall, 
Lerwick, on August 13, 1919. The Sheriff, in referring to the War Office's 
demands during the war for more men for the Army, said : — " When an official 
visited Lerwick the figures of men on service were gone into, and it was found 



SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 273 

that in regard to the number of men who had gone forth to serve King and 
Country, Shetland was very nearly at the top." 

WAR WORK AT HOME. 

In the part played by what was popularly known as the " home front," and 
which affected a good deal the moral of the country as a whole, the Shetland 
Islands did their full share. A few days after the declaration of war the ladies 
of Lerwick formed an Emergency Association to be ready in the event of 
wounded men being brought into the port. The Shetland Branch of Queen 
Mary's Needlework Guild also was instituted and continued its valued activities 
until some time after the Armistice. Every movement that could help to win the 
war : financial support, collection of eggs, the supplying of comforts for the 
fighting men, etc., found most willing and generous support all over the County. 

The Lerwick Emergency Helpers were formed on 7th August, 1914. Mrs 
John Leisk was the first Chairman, and continued to act until 25th May, 1919. 
The respective Secretaries and Treasurers were :- — Miss J. T. Mitchell, 7th August, 
1914, to 27th April, 1916; Mrs A. J. P. Menzies, 27th April, 1916, to 16th 
October, 1917; Mrs J. W. Laurenson, 16th October, 1917, to 25th May, 1919. 
There was a Committee of 17 ladies, and the helpers numbered 50 ladies — all 
belonging to Lerwick. At the outset Nursing and First Aid Classes were 
formed for the purpose of aiding wounded in case the need might arise. Meet- 
ings were held daily, and later, weekly, to prepare surgical dressings and knit 
comforts, etc. Articles numbering 1100 were supplied to soldiers and sailors 
and 930 to the Gilbert Bain Hospital; 2427 bandages were made; 208 articles 
were sent to the Fever Hospital; 123 to the Church Army Hut; 71 to Dr 
Walker's Hospital, Gremista ; and a considerable quantity of used clothing was 
collected and given to men and women from ships which had been torpedoed in 
Shetland waters. A Committee was appointed to tend the graves of naval men 
interred at Lerwick. Two self-propelling chairs (one in memory of Lord 
Kitchener) were forwarded in response to the urgent appeal of the Director- 
General of Voluntary Organisations. A quantity of wool, sent from Scotland 
House, London, was knitted into comforts and returned, added to which 153 
articles were sent from the Helpers. In April, 1917, duty was taken up at the 
Church Army Hut, Lerwick, which was extensively used by service men, and in 
which place first aid, food and clothing were also given to men and women 
rescued by the Northern Patrol from ships torpedoed or mined in Shetland 
waters. This work was carried on until the Hut closed on 10th April, 1919. 
The amount of funds raised by the Helpers was ^424 16s 3d, including 
^209 12s contributed to defray the cost of and endow the " Lerwick " bed in 
Rouyaumont Hospital, France. The self-imposed work of the Emergency 
Helpers was highly appreciated by the large numbers of seamen, women, soldiers, 
sailors, and others who benefited by their activities, and the Army Council de- 
cided to allow those to whom a Badge had been awarded to retain the same as 
a lasting souvenir of their service on behalf of the country, while the Committee 
of the Church Army returned their hearty thanks and high appreciation " for the 
devoted and unselfish service carried out by the Helpers at Lerwick." 

The Shetland Branch of Queen Mary's Needlework Guild was formed on 
3rd September, 191 4. Organisers were appointed for each district and also 
local Committees, and steps were at once taken to collect sewn or knitted gar- 
ments of various kinds to be sent to the soldiers and sailors. The headquarters 
of the Shetland Branch were in the County Hall, Lerwick, where meetings were 
regularly held, and at which large numbers of Lerwick ladies worked with 
devotion and enthusiasm. The same energy and zeal were displayed all over 
the County, with the result that in a short time innumerable articles, mostly 



274 SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 

hand-knitted from Shetland wool, were ready for despatch to the forces. In 
this work the women of Shetland set a magnificent example. There was noth- 
ing sporadic in their effort. They were inspired by determination to do all they 
could to make the lot of the sailors and soldiers more comfortable, and if it was 
possible for the best Shetland-made comforts to do so, their industry met with 
the success it deserved, as was evinced by the many letters from officers and 
men who had received some of the articles sent away. As the need became 
greater so did the activity of these loyal women of Shetland become more 
sustained, and when at last the time came for their work to cease they were 
able to point to a record of achievement which will stand as a lasting monument 
to their devotion and womanly sympathy with the men who were undergoing 
the most severe hardships and exposure. The number of comforts contributed, 
mostly Shetland knitted, totalled no less than 15,496, and included 5638 pairs 
socks, 1925 scarves, 1136 helmets, 1123 belts, 558 jerseys and cardigans, 424 
wristlets, 416 mitts, 378 pairs of gloves, 225 pairs operation stockings, and 204 
sleeping socks, etc., etc. Royal Naval Reserve men leaving Shetland received 
539 comforts, and 11 29 were handed to men connected with the Shetland Gordons 
and other regiments. Money subscriptions amounted to ^406 12s id, and the 
balance of £60 19s 3d in hand when the Guild closed was given to the fund for 
the erection of a War Memorial to Shetland's fallen sons. From beginning to 
end the work of the Guild was an outstanding success, and was due entirely to 
the whole-hearted efforts of thousands of Shetland women. The respective 
office-bearers of the Guild were : — Presidents — Mrs Bruce of Sumburgh, and 
Lady Nicolson, Brough Lodge, Fetlar. Vice-Presidents — Mrs R. D. Ganson, 
Brentham House, Lerwick; Mrs A. J. P. Menzies, Braeside, Lerwick; Mrs 
Bayne, Old Manse, Lerwick. Hon. Secretaries — Mrs J. C. Grierson, Helen- 
dale, Lerwick, and Mrs R. D. Ganson, Brentham House, Lerwick. Hon. 
Treasurer — Mrs R. B. Hunter, O.B.E., Union Bank House, Lerwick. County 
District Organisers — Unst, Mrs H. Saxby and Mr H. Johnson; Fetlar, Lady 
Nicolson; Mid Yell, Mrs J. N. Barclay; South Yell, Miss MacDonald ; North 
Yell, Mrs J. Bicket ; Nesting, Mrs G. Brewster; Whalsay, Mrs W. A. Bruce; 
North Roe, Mrs W. S. Burgess; Hillswick, Mrs T. Anderson; Delting, Miss 
Inkster; Mossbank, Mrs W. Pole; Lunnasting, Miss Manson ; Sandness, Mr 
Coutts and Mrs Simpson ; Papa Stour, Mrs Drummond ; Walls, Mrs Thomason ; 
Reawick, Miss Umphray, Mrs Allan and Mrs MacLean ; Bixter, Mrs Sutherland ; 
Tresta, Mrs Johnston ; Weisdale, Mrs Paterson ; Whiteness, Miss Milne and 
Mrs Reid ; Tingwall, Mrs Macintyre; Scalloway, Mrs L. J. Garriock and Mrs P. 
MacDougall ; Burra, Mrs R. M. Robertson; Quarff, Miss Love; Cunningsburgh, 
Mrs S. Wallace and Mrs White; Sandwich, Miss Wingate and Mrs C. N. 
Baldie ; Levenwick, Mrs Imrie; Bigton, Mrs Budge and Mrs Chalmers; Quendale, 
Mrs Leslie ; Bressay, Mrs Crawford and Mrs Mainland ; Ollaberry, Miss Garriock. 
In January and February, 1919, yet another appeal was made to the people 
of Shetland, but this time the object was of a different nature : it was not to 
contribute comforts for British service men under arms ; it was for clothing to 
keep warm the destitute and starving children of our vanquished enemies. This 
appeal on behalf of the " Save the Children " Fund was met with characteristic 
magnanimity, and in that same spirit which had dominated the whole country 
during the long years of war. In a few weeks 15 18 garments were sent in 
from all parts of the County and town to the depot at Lerwick, and were for- 
warded to headquarters in Edinburgh for transmission to the destitute in 
Central Europe. In addition, a sum of ^122 7s 4d was subscribed for the 
the same object. The office-bearers of the " Save the Children Fund were: — ■ 
Joint-Conveners — Mrs J. W. Robertson, Scarpa, Lerwick, and Mrs P. S. 
Goodlad, Rockmount, Lerwick. Hon. Secretary — Mrs R. B. Hunter, O.B.E., 
Union Bank House, Lerwick. Hon. Treasurer — Mrs R. H. Ramsay, Fogralea, 
Lerwick. 



SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 275 

In the National Egg Collection for the Wounded, Shetland took a prominent 
and highly creditable part, and, in proportion to population, contributed far 
more generously than any of the Northern Counties in Scotland. Collectors 
were appointed in every parish, and the eggs contributed were forwarded 
periodically to headquarters in Lerwick, whence they were despatched to Aberdeeen 
and distributed to hospitals in which wounded men were being treated, or 
preserved for use in winter when eggs were unprocurable. The district collectors 
throughout the islands were most enthusiastic, and the people everywhere 
responded to the appeal for eggs — an appeal which was one of the most direct 
and personal made on behalf of wounded and sick Service men — with a generosity 
as remarkable as it was sustained, month after month and year after year. The 
grand total of eggs gifted by Shetland was no less than 300,636, and in addition 
a sum of £216 19s 7d was contributed, chiefly by those who were not in a 
position to give eggs, for the purchase of them in places where they were more 
plentiful. That the eggs were appreciated was proved by the fact that many 
young Shetland ladies received warm letters of thanks from wounded men in 
reply to the good wishes or other message of hope written in pencil on eggs 
sent away. The organizing of the egg collecting in the County was first taken 
in hand by Miss N. Davis, N.D.A., dairying instructress in Shetland, and after 
she left to go to England the work was superintended by Misses Marjorie and 
Doris Hunter, Lerwick. 

It is impossible to estimate accurately the amount of financial help and 
support given by Shetland to the numerous war charities and other objects for 
which money was appealed. These appeals were numerous and never-ending, 
and ranged from the humble Flag Day to the Victory Loan effort, and they were 
responded to with that same patriotic spirit which marked every contribution that 
Shetland made, from its manhood to its moss, to win the war. Victory Loan 
Week yielded a total sum of ^173,000, and among the larger sums given in the 
cause of charity were the following: — Scottish Red Cross, ^2574 15s 3d; 
Shetland Agriculturists' Free Gift Sale (in aid of the Red Cross " Shetland " 
Ambulance and Gilbert Bain Hospital), ^1508 12s 5d ; Belgian Relief Fund, 
;£6oo, and several tons of new and used clothing specially sent to Belgian 
refugees; Red Cross Week in Shetland, ^496; Queen Mary's Needlework Guild, 
^406 12s id; the Lerwick Emergency Helpers, ^424 16s 3d; Scottish 
Hospital for Limbless Sailors and Soldiers, ^192 8s iod; Scottish Huts 
in France, ^138 7s 5d ; St. Dunstan's Hostel for Blinded Service Men, ^130; 
Starving Children in Central Europe, ^122 7s 4d ; King George's Fund for 
Sailors, £113 15s 7d. The above are only a few of the larger sums raised, 
either by direct subscription or the proceeds of concerts, etc. All the many 
other frequently recurring lesser appeals were very generously responded to in 
both town and country, the individual amounts raised varying from ^30 to ^100. 
The total sum, including the investments during Victory Loan Week, was 
considerably over ^200,000. The sale of War Savings Certificates and the 
amount invested in Certificates and War Bonds through the banks and Post 
Offices was understood to represent an additional ^100,000. 

The Shetland Times Cigarette Fund was opened a few weeks after war was 
declared. The appeal was a popular one, and received very generous support. 
When the Fund closed in February, 1919, a total sum of ^563 6s 7d had been 
collected and an aggregate of 1,589,500 cigarettes despatched to Scottish 
regiments at the front. In connection with the Daily Telegraph and Daily 
News Christmas Pudding Fund for Soldiers, the Slietland News made an appeal 
in October, 1916, for contributions from the people of Shetland, and within a few 
weeks the handsome sum of ^281 us 6d was collected in town and country. 

Another successful effort made in Shetland was in connection with the urgent 
appeal for Sphagnum Moss, which was largely used during the war as anti- 
septic surgical dressings. A " Moss Day " was organised for 9th August, 



276 SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 

1917, when young and old, rich and poor, flocked to the hillsides and moors 
of Shetland, and gathered a grand total of 2500 sacks. Special collections 
again took place in August and September, 1918, when nearly 3000 very large 
sacks were filled. In addition to these collective and organised efforts, individuals 
and parties gathered moss during their spare time, and cleaned and dried it 
before despatch to Aberdeen. The larger quantities were conveyed gratis over 
land by motor-car owners and from the islands by steamship or launches, and the 
whole was taken to Aberdeen freight free. The Shetland moss was described 
as of the very finest and purest quality, and Mr Henry Mouat, Lerwick, who 
organised the " Moss Days," received highly appreciative letters from the 
Aberdeen Depot, together with the request that the gatherers should be specially 
thanked for their labour of love. 

The great strategic importance of Shetland had been recognised by the 
Admiralty long before the War, and immediately on the outbreak of hostilities 
the Islands were as far as possible utilised for service. The importance of 
Shetland increased as the war developed, and it became one of the leading 
advanced Naval Bases in the country. The general Base was at Lerwick, 
but Svvaarbacks Minn was later made the northern Base ifor the 10th Cruiser 
Squadron, and several adjacent bays and voes were used in connection with this 
vast work. Subsequently a seaplane station was established at Catfirth, Nesting, 
and a Kite Balloon Station at Gremista, Lerwick. Throughout the war a 
powerful " eavesdropping " wireless station at Cunning sburgh was used, and 
was the means of picking up most valuable information chiefly concerning the 
movements of U-boats leaving and entering the North Sea. 

In November, 1914, Lerwick was established as an examination port and 
base for auxiliary patrol vessels, under Captain Startin, R.N.R., whose head- 
quarters were on board the yacht Shemara. In March, 1915, Captain Startin 
was relieved by Commander (afterwards Act.-Capt.) H. G. Alston, C.B. An 
office was opened ashore in the north end of Lerwick Fish Mart, which, along 
with the whole of Alexandra Wharf, was eventually commandeered by the 
Admiralty. On 29th August, 191 5, H.M.S. Brilliant arrived at Lerwick, and 
took over duty as guard and depot ship at the Base, but later, the Base was 
officially known as " H.M.S. Ambitious." In September, 191 5, an examination 
office was opened for the purpose of dealing with neutral ships sent in by the 
10th Cruiser Squadron, and from July to September, 1916, 269 ships were 
examined at Lerwick. In one year 150 suspects were removed from intercepted 
vessels. March, 1917, saw the introduction of the great convoy system, and 
during the succeeding ten months more merchant vessels of all nationalities 
were brought to Lerwick than the total that had used it in its whole history as 
a seaport. The merchant ships were convoyed from the East and West Coasts 
of Scotland and England to Lerwick, and thence across the North Sea, and 
vice versa, the escorting vessels being fast ocean-going destroyers and armed 
trawlers. In less than one year 4500 vessels, of approximately 5,000,000 nett 
tons, sailed in these convoys, and this tonnage was said to be greater than that 
of any other port in the United Kingdom. Between October 18, 1917, and 
January 10, 1918, a total of 4150 vessels (irrespective of local defence craft) 
passed through the channels of the approaches to Lerwick, notwithstanding that 
these channels were constantly menaced by hostile submarines and minelayers. 
In the course of the war the flag of practically every maritime nation was seen 
in Lerwick harbour, and from early in 191 7 until the end of 191 8 Lerwick 
presented a scene of unprecedented activity. In the beginning of 191 8, by 
which time the British Navy had got the upper hand of the U-boats, Lerwick 
ceased to be a convoy port, and the Base was removed to the Firth of Forth. 
In its place came into being the Northern Patrol Force under the command of 
Vice-Admiral Sir Reginald Tupper, K.C.B., C.V.O., and throughout the year 
the harbour was also used as a Base for the North Russian operations, and was 



SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. lyy 

used daily by the constant stream of traffic to the White Sea, and again, in the 
fall of the year, by the returning troopships, hospital ships, monitors, colliers 
and munition carriers. From 8th October, 1917, until the Base closed on 13th 
December, 19x9, the flag of Rear-Admiral C. Greatorex, C.B., M.V.O., flew at 
Fort Charlotte. 

The convoy work of 191 7 was not carried on without loss of men and ships. 
On October 17 of that year, nine neutral steamers and the destroyers " Mary 
Rose " and " Strongbow " were sunk by two fast German light cruisers. Of 
the crews of the destroyers 135 oificers and men were lost. On December 12, 
H.M.S. Partridge and four armed trawlers and six merchantmen were sunk by 
four enemy destroyers. On another occasion an outgoing and an incoming 
convoy collided almost stem on during a very dark night, as a result of which 
the destroyer " Marmion " and several merchant ships went down. In the 
spring of 1918 news reached Lerwick of a projected attack by ten or twelve 
fast German destroyers, the enemy's objective, it was believed, being the 
destruction of the kite balloon station at Gremista and seaplane station at 
Catfirth in the hope that this would disorganise the newly-established agencies 
for combating U-boats. There were no heavily armed war vessels at Lerwick 
at the time, and a few tense hours followed the receipt of the warning message. 
Fortunately no attack developed, the enemy either missing their objective in the 
fog or fearing to risk coming too near the dangerous waters of the East Side 
of Shetland. 

On 1 2th April, 1915, a considerable quantity of T.N.T. exploded in stores 
on the Alexandra Wharf occupied by the Admiralty. Seven men, including 
four Shetlanders, were killed and 28 injured, and damage estimated at ^"12,000 
was done to buildings in the town. A depth charge exploded on the trawler 
" Tenby Castle " on 7th February, 1918, while lying at Alexandra Wharf. Four 
men were killed and one injured, and much damage was done to adjacent 
buildings. On the night of 23rd-24th June, 191 5 two large German submarines 
attacked the Lerwick herring fishing fleet (consisting of Scottish East Coast 
craft) operating 25 to 30 miles east of Skerries. Sixteen drifters were sunk by 
bombs and gunfire, and one fishermen died as a result of wounds. In his 
enterprises off Shetland, however, the enemy did not always escape, and many 
gallant fights with his submarines took place in the vicinity of the islands, in the 
course of which quite a number of U-boats were sunk. Frequently merchant 
ships struck mines in the inshore Shetland waters and were lost, but a good 
many managed to reach Lerwick harbour in a damaged state, and several of 
these were temporarily repaired at the port and afterwards escorted to shipyards 
on the Mainland. Between December, 1914, and March, 191 5, 998 trawlers 
and drifters called at Lerwick for instructions. Throughout the period of the 
war 306 Admiralty colliers delivered approximately 270,000 tons of coal at 
Lerwick, 43 steamers discharged 16,000 tons of naval stores, and 30 oil tankers 
brought north 52,000 tons of fuel for oil-burning ships. It remains to be added 
that the magnitude of the sea effort so far as Shetland was concerned was 
reflected in the complementary work ashore at Lerwick, in offices, stores, depots, 
and also at Fort Charlotte, where intense activity prevailed until the end of the 
struggle. 

The advanced base of the 10th Cruiser Squadron was at Swaarbacks Minn, 
which was under the command of Rear-Admiral W. B. Fawckner from June, 
1915, to November, 1917, when it came under the control of Rear-Admiral 
Greatorex. This squadron of fast armed liners and cruisers patrolled the seas 
from Ireland to north of Iceland, and in all intercepted and dealt with 15,000 
vessels. In the first month of the war, on 27th August, the White Star liner 
Oceanic (17,234 tons), struck the submerged reef known as the Hividigrind, 
Foula, while on patrol duty, and eventually became a total wreck. 

Had the war continued longer than it did the seaplane station at Catfirth 



278 SHETLAND IN THE GREAT WAR. 

and Kite Balloon Station at Gremista would no doubt have been developed and 
employed with success in combating U-boat activity, but neither station had 
begun to function serviceably when the war came to an end. In 1918 a 
hydrophone station was established at the Ness of Sound, and was in use before 
the war terminated. 

In other directions on land in Shetland there was continuous activity on the 
Mainland and in the islands. Early in the war scores of outlook posts were 
erected on headlands, hills, and high cliffs, but the number of these was 
subsequently reduced to 24. Telephones were laid to remote islands that did 
not have the telegraph, and in a few cases portable wireless installations were 
put up. Four batteries, manned by Marines, were established, two at Bressay 
(at Aith and the Bard), one at Vementry, and one at the Knab, Lerwick (with 
two. guns). These batteries were armed with six-inch guns, but there was 
never any occasion to use them. Seven guns' crews were trained and sent t 
various places in the islands, viz., Unst, Yell, Hillswick, Voc, Walls, Sandwick, 
and Lerwick. In each case powerful motor-cars were available to pull the guns 
quickly to any point where they might be required. The six cable guards in 
the islands were at first composed of Territorials, and afterwards of R.N.R. 
men over military age. The number of patrol and look-out men in Shetland 
in 1917 was 350, and in the spring of 1918, 264. In July of that year patrols 
were abolished, and under the new look-out scheme 190 men were employed. 
The military control of all land activities was directed from Fort Charlotte, 
Lerwick, the successive O.C. Troops in Shetland being: — Lieut. -Col. H. C. Evans, 
R.M.L.I. ; Lieut.-Col. F. T. Phillips, R.M.L.I. ; Brevet Lieut.-Col. Chas. E. 
Collard, R.M.L.I.; and Lieut.-Col. F. C. Edwards, R.M.L.I. 

Owing to its isolated position the young women of Shetland did not have 
the same opportunity as women in the south of joining the various auxiliary 
forces formed for women during the war. Most of those who were in the 
south, however, joined either the W.R.N.S., W.R.A.F., or the W.A.A.C. A 
company of W.R.N.S. was formed in Lerwick in connection with the work of 
the Naval Base, and their services were very highly appreciated by the respective 
S.N.O. 's in charge of the Base. A number of Boy Scouts, belonging to the 
Shetland Branch of the Boy Scouts Association, were attached to the Lerwick 
Station, and were employed as messengers and in various other capacities. 
Before leaving Lerwick Rear-Admiral Greatorex, S.N.O. , sent to the Hon. 
Secretary of the Association, Mr E. T. Hyde, an expression of his appreciation 
of the assistance of the Boy Scouts, " especially in enabling me to set free 
ratings who were fit for more active work afloat." 

During the greater part of the war the Post Offices in Shetland were open 
night and day, and at the head office at Lerwick, in particular, which was the 
main transmitter and receiver of tremendous numbers of official messages, the 
pressure was continuous and extraordinarily heavy. This work reached its 
climax during the convoying of merchant ships in 19 17, when more than a 
thousand messages, some of them running to the equivalent of two newspaper 
columns each, were telegraphed to London daily. 

Official peace celebrations took place at Lerwick on June 30, 1919, and July 
19 was the official Peace Day in Shetland. 

The above is but an outline of the main activities of Shetland during the 
Great War. Detail is necessarily lacking, but what is told will give an idea of 
the loyal and patriotic part played by the " Old Rock " and its sons and 
daughters in the greatest struggle in the history of the world, and show to 
posterity that in love of country and willingness to sacrifice to the uttermost 
limit in the cause of Freedom, the people of the Shetland Islands who lived 
through the tragic years 1914-1919 proved themselves worthy descendents of the 
brave, unvanquished Norsemen.
