On Sanday we have links to this Battle.
The B98 was the lead boat in the 2nd Flotilla.The B98 was boarded in Scapa Flow having arrived late for the German scuttle of their boats. As it was being towed it lost its tow and subsequently ran aground in Lopness Bay.The remains of this destroyer is the only one known from the battle that can be seen today.
The Sanday Heritage Group will be having a day of thier own to commemorate the B98 and also the U70 which took part in the battle and ran aground near Start Point ( near the Lighthouse).It jettisoned its load and was able to refloat the next day.
