While out shopping this morning, Mrs T met an elderly Italian who spoke excellent English. He told her he had been a PoW in WWII, had been caged in a number of places but had finished up in the Orkneys. There , he said, he had made many friends with whom he still communicates. He went on to say that the PoWs had built a church there and erected a statue of St George & the Dragon outside the church. The statue was built of concrete with barbed wire reinforcement and that 'to this day, not even a single finger has fallen off. Somebody must be looking out for St George.' I have a vague memory of hearing about this church somewhere, but had not heard the story of St George. Does anybody have any further info?
