My Granny recently gave me my Grandads war record. After doing a little research, I found out from the 12th October 1942 he was stationed up in the Northern Isles of Orkney. And stayed there for over a year before being shipped off to the Far East.

So 70 years later, minus 2 days, I would make the same journey.

With a tent, mountain bike and a large vat of bolognese in tow, I would have my own adventure North.
