Scapa Flow Campaign ribbon
The flag of Scotland. This award signifies completion of the Scapa Flow 2012 campaign

Operational Overview
The sheltered bay of Scapa Flow was home to the British fleet from 1904 and remained in use as a naval base until 1956. In the short space of time the cold grey waters of Scapa Flow were the stage upon which many world shaking events took place. The idea behind this group build is to portray any warship that at some time was involved in the history of Scapa Flow, so it could be a diorama of the Home Fleet, a warship of the German Fleet sinking, on the sea bed or being salvaged. You could even consider Prien's boat sneaking into Scapa Flow to sink the Royal Oak or a salvage diver working on a sunken hulk.
