Shetland Library is publishing two books about World War One. "Blockade 1914-1918 -- How Shetland Won the War," is about the Tenth Cruiser Squadron operating out of Shetland in the blockade of Germany, and written by Dr Ian Tait. "Safely Wounded" is a collection of letters by Shetland servicemen, and one nurse, written during World War One. It has been compiled by staff and volunteers at the Shetland Archives. The launch is at 7.30 pm. at the Shetland Museum and Archives, Hay's Dock, Lerwick.
In December 2014, the Shetland Islands Council Convener, Malcolm Bell, unveiled a commemorative paving slab at the War Memorial in Lerwick, in honour of Lieutenant William Arthur Macrae Bruce, a Victoria Cross holder of Shetland descent.
