Wg Cdr Le Cheminant, who was CO of Saxa from 16 Feb 68 to 31 Dec 69, was posted to Singapore, where he took over as CO of the Air Defence Radar Unit Bukit Gombak. He wrote the following article about his Unst experience and it was published in the June 1970 issue of the Tengah Times (Tengah parented Bukit Gombak). The article was subsequently reproduced in the Shetland Times.
The aim of this site is to preserve memories of RAF Saxa Vord for service personnel and local civilians. I spent 22 years in the RAF as a Fighter Controller and was at RAF Saxa Vord from November 1967 until March 1969. In 1988 I left the RAF and settled in Shetland and have lived here ever since.
I am always on the lookout for suitable material and would appreciate it if anyone can help out with photos and/or printable anecdotes. I am also anxious to ensure that the material on the site is accurate and would be grateful if anyone who notices mistakes, or believes that photos have been incorrectly credited, would contact me.
