First rule - don't call the place the "Orkney's", really pisses off the locals like me. The name Orkney is actually plural so doesn't need an "s" added but you will get off with Orkney Islands.

During WW2 over 3 million Anderson air raid shelters were distributed in kit form for home build/installation In the UK.

During the same conflict over 60 million change of addresses were registered in the UK.

I've just realised, having recently again been reading the hobbit I hadn't clocked it was about a place.

I thought the statement was all about Auk Knees.

I couldn't grasp why there was such concern about the middle earth health service.

As for Orkney Islands, north of Watford is bad enough, north of Edinburgh is the stone age :)

Not many Anderson shelters remain intact and very few are accessible to the public as most were sited in private gardens

And the less known Morrison shelter…designed to withstand a two storey house falling on it, room for two adults and two kids.
