Shetland Bus Memorial

During WWII, the Norwegian resistance movement operated the ‘Shetland Bus’ from here. The trips were very successful, carrying agents, wireless operators and military supplies to Norway for the resistance movement. This memorial is built with stones from Scottland and the Norwegian stones are from the home areas of 44 Norwegians who died running the gauntlet between Norway and Scalloway.
