  3. The TA did have range down at the south end the Quendale area i believe i assumed it was still operational but perhaps not .The cadets did have a small bore range situated next to the Garrison theatre but that definitely is no longer in use .

Do you have any idea of the value of the fish EU vessels take from Shetland waters each year ? At a rough guess i would say £100 million at least it could be much more .
  5. Just loved the spin everyone ''welcoming'' the deal you would have thought we were getting £5 Mill not giving it away . To put it in perspective its more than all the SIC austerity and cutbacks has saved ..
  6. It could have been £100 million they handed over the locals don't seem to care .
