Burrs Mill, Bury - Italian internees, WWII - Matania Featured 26 Feb 2014 Image

Burrs Mill, Bury - Italian internees, WWII - Matania

Interior view of Burrs Mill, Bury, Lancashire, a former mill and bleaching factory, which was used to intern Italian prisoners during the Second World War. The building was dilapidated, with puddles and grease on the floors, and consequently most uncomfortable for inmates, many of whom were then sent onwards to the Isle of Man. The painting is by Italian artist Fortunino Matania, who had lived in the UK since 1904, was special artist of The Sphere magazine and had painted hundreds of pictures during the First World War from the Allied point of view. Matania was briefly interned, part of the British government's Collar the lot! policy during war, but later released. It is likely that the figure standing, centre left, is him.

They also have state of the art digitised glass cockpits and upgraded LCD instruments.
The Puma Mk2 can fit into a C-17 which means that it can be transported anywhere in the world and, crucially, can be ready to deploy in support of both combat and humanitarian missions in just 4Royal Air Force Benson - Puma 2 ZJ954 & XW231 hours. The aircraft, with improved ballistic protection, is capable of carrying up to 16 fully equipped troops. Twin cargo doors and low rotor downwash make it ideal for transporting personnel and equipment in and out of confined urban environments
