Libertymen at Lyness
A war artist's interpretation of the Drifter Pier at Lyness, Hoy, in the Orkney Islands. Lyness became the centre of Boom Defences, where the massive pier portrayed here was erected. Its complexity and cost earned it the name 'Golden Wharf'. Due to the vulnerability of the surface oil-storage tanks it was decided, in 1939, to construct underground tanks. Highly skilled Norwegian miners from Spitsbergen were employed to work on this massive excavation.
