Another image from the roll of film that’s been lurking in my Nikon F3HP since last October’s trip to Scotland!
This is the control tower at the former Royal Air Force (RAF) station at Wigtown in Scotland. The station was active between 1941 and 1945 and from 1947 to 1948, mainly in a training role, but a number of operational squadrons also visited the station, the last being the Bomber Command Trials Unit flying Avro Lancasters.

Hopefully by now the boiler has been reunited with the rest of the locomotive!

I’d forgotten that whilst in France during the summer of 2018 I’d put a roll of film through a charity shop find Minolta Vectis S-1 Advanced Photo System (APS) SLR camera.
I’m not entirely sure where said camera is at the moment, when it turns up I’ll write a few words about it but in the meantime I’ll share a few of the images from the roll of film I shot…
