Air Raid Shelter - RAF Peterhead
Air Raid Shelter - RAF Peterhead
I was surprised to discover that the WW2 airfield complex between Longside and Peterhead was more extensive than I first thought. Situated some distance to the east of the airfield itself are the footings of several huts, presumably similar to the extant example in the background.

The main subject of this image however, is the Stanton Air Raid Shelter, one of 4 extant at this site.
