    ... done by 1,300 Italian Prisoners of War from 1942 onwards. Apparently they objected that it was a violation of the Geneva Convention for them to be put to work on a military-oriented project, but the Brits just said it was community improvement to build roads to connect the islands. After Mussolini was fell and Italy joined the Allied side later in the war, the Italians were no longer POWs but couldn’t leave and got paid a regular wage for their work as well as being ...

    ... less than 2,000. And I think we really only stopped there just so we could say we'd been there. It was 5.30 Sunday evening, the few shops there were were closed, the mist was coming down and the wind becoming bitter.
