David Webster from Fife. Life During Wartime
I lived in Wick from 1939 until 1945 because it was thought it would be safer in Wick than in Fife. However it was not to be the case - Wick saw action at the local hospital when a British plane crashed into it. A bomb exploded in Wick near the aerodrome and a German plane flew over the field at Old Wick.
