The Saxa Vord beacon lighting
The Unstfest Puffins have been a feature of summer's Unstfest for the last few years and each year they are renamed, with many this year commemorating WW1 battles. They were all repainted (and some renamed) and put on display for the lighting of the beacon on Saxa Vord (at the entrance to RAF Saxa Vord) as part of the commemoration of the centenary of the Armistice on 11th November 2018.
