HY4022 : Tingwall: the day’s post heads for Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre

Tingwall: the day’s post heads for Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre
This Royal Mail van is reversing onto the ferry but will not actually be travelling. The mail will be unloaded from the van before it returns to dry land. When the ferry calls at Rousay, a van will be ready to pick up the island's post (see HY4327 : Rousay: post and milk arriving), before the same thing happens on arrival at Wyre and Egilsay - although on a much smaller scale and with no need for a vehicle!
