Some military service was packed with action and danger; some was sedentary and safer. Second World War postings to Orkney tended to fall into the latter category. The troops needed entertainment and so garrisons, airfields and naval bases were often equipped with facilities.

Both are featured on the website Scottish Military Cinemas and these relics will undoubtedly provide recollections to just a few readers.
