Taffrail, The Bridge of Walls Hotel, Henry Taprell Dorling


Recommended Posts

Just read the really very good pre-WW2 thriller The Shetland Plan, by 'Taffrail' (Henry Taprell Dorling) which exhibits a very exact knowledge of Shetland geography. I know Dorling was stationed in Busta Voe during WW1, but I have heard that he lived at the Bridge of Walls Hotel or perhaps owned it. Does anyone know anything more? This is for a possible article in Shetland Life
