World War II air raid shelter

No one takes photos of air raid shelters, but they sneak in here and there.


Railways were targets for bombing. Kittybrewster was bombed twice: April 1943, and October 1940 (see above).


At Maud there are two air raid shelters, one on the island platform and one on the platform opposite for the signalman and shunters (above). This signalman’s shelter was used as a lamp room and oil store after the war.


There was also the 'pill box' overlooking the road at the north end of the Fraserburgh platform. It was for soldiers to use in defence of the railway and roads.
