Elgin Cathedral, Lossiemouth

Elgin Cathedral, Lossiemouth

Residing in the northern part of Scotland, in Moray District, exists what is now the ruins of what was a once great and old structure. Lossiemouth can claim this great structure as its own.

In that century the seats of Papal authority existed in surrounding areas both close and far away from Elgin itself. The position and residence of that seat was held by Bishop Bricius. For his own personal reasons and possibly for a greater cause, the petition was a success in 1224 when it was finalized.

RAF Lossiemouth

The Royal Air Force facility in Lossiemouth, Scotland was built in the first half of the twentieth century, nearly 70 years ago. Built in 1939, RAF Lossiemouth was used during World Ward 2 (WW2). Harvard and Oxford planes were the first aircraft to be seen frequenting and using the facility during its formative years after having been built, but that soon grew to include many other aircraft. The area had perfect weather, prime conditions and was suited to house many more vehicles and necessary mission transports. At first, the facility was used mostly as a training area for bombing runs, but there were several operational missions carried out from here. The most notable being the mission that crippled the Tirpitz, Germany’s beacon and pride, the head of its battle fleet. Read the full story
