The 75th Anniversary mailboat has been found!!!
21 October 2005
It was launched on August 29th of this year to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the last evacuation of islanders from St Kilda (see Diary entry on September 1st for pictures of the magnificently crafted vessel!). The mailboat washed up 28 days later on the shores of Shetland, and was recovered near Culswick. Many thanks to the finder, Mick Mellor.
Now that’s entertainment (magic)
