is the most main northerly radar station
in the United Kingdom.
It's north of Aberdeen
and near the town of Peterhead,
perched on a hill.
A major radar station and a very busy radar station
at the times when I was there.
It is miles away from real civilization
as we used to call,
because to go north there was hardly anything
other than, I suppose you got Inverness,
but everything was south, family was south,
friends were south,
anything you wanted to do was south.
So, it was quite isolated,
but it was very rewarding
because the job you did was real.
The Russian infringing our air space
with their Bears and so on, 24/7,
we'd be playing the Cold War scenario
five, six days continuous
where we would be monitoring them,
the fighters would be escorting them
until they left our airspace.
