Fraserburgh During World War 2

Fraserburgh at War ‘Little London’ (1939-45)

Published on 20 Jan 2013 by mathieson72.

“Fraserburgh (known locally as “The Broch”) can claim three holders of the Victoria Cross, an outstanding number of Britain’s highest military award for such a small fishing town. During the Second World War (1939-45) Fraserburgh became known as “Little London”. The German Luftwaffe targeted merchant convoys, which sailed close-by the coastline. Before returning to their air base in Trondheim, Norway, they would unload their unused bombs …. on Fraserburgh.”
