On the trip back we came back through Letterkenny Army Base and found the Chapel that was built by Italian POW's during WW II and the 9/11 memorial and I got some pic's.
The 9/11 memorial, I think they did a very nice job, it was kind of awe inspiring to see an actual piece from the towers.
It occured to him they might be able to help the prisoner if they could help him find a reason to live. The commander called him into the office the next morning and asked the elderly man if he would be interested in designing a Chapel for the base. The man became interested and said he could not only design the Chapel but he could build it.
The chapel tower was built first using native stone gotton from the bases of old farmhouses located on the base and the rest quickly followed. It was dedicated in May of 1945 and closed soon after the war ended. It was reopened in 1963 and refurbished.
Stay safe, Bob
