The Italians were sent to help Balfour Beattie build a giant causeway to protect our naval fleet in the north of Scotland.
One cannot imagine what it must have been like for these men, only a few of whom spoke any English. Most captured in north Africa and then being transported all the way to the north of Scotland.
Like all POWs there was a mixture of skills and talents among the men and one among them, Domenico Chiocchetti an artist, felt that having a proper place to pray and receive succour for the soul would be of great benefit to the men.
Paris's story, part fiction, part fact makes for an interesting read. The ingenuity of the men who undertook the task with little in the way of the necessary materials, the friendliness of both the islanders and the British soldiers in charge of the camp all add to a fascinating time in Orkneys history. And the fact that the people there very much wanted to preserve what was an amazing feat brought a tear to my eye.
A lovely little story
