1983 – The Second Year

The badge represented a MacEwans Export beer can – also known as a Shetland Rose because ‘ Everywhere in Shetland you stop you will find one growing beside the road’! HONEST!!

Top photo shows some of the troops at Aberdeen: Nigel Woodthorpe, Ned Sparks, Jimmy Grieves, Stuart Tod and (doing the Tommy Cooper impression) Steve Gibbons.

Bottom Photo – On one of the inter island ferries to Yell and Unst on the main run. Blue helmet (right) is Phil The Spill. Black hat centre is Des Fisher and Steve Henry with the red shouldered jacket
