Widow to continue fight of men used as nuclear bomb “guinea pigs”


Catherine Scott’s husband William died in 2009

A WIDOW has told how she aims to fight for justice for her husband and other soldiers used as

“guinea pigs’ during British nuclear bomb tests.

Catherine Scott’s late husband William was one of thousands of servicemen showered with radiation during atomic testing off Christmas Island in the late 1950s.

Mrs Scott has now taken up his fight for compensation following his death at the age of 70.

Her battle follows new calls for the Scottish Government to step in.

Labour leader Iain Gray has urged First Minister Alex Salmond to intervene.

Mrs Scott said:

“This is not about the money, I just want justice. It’s time the British government recognised what was done to these poor men. “
