The Battle of Britain couldn't have been won without UK's homegrown tech innovations


Re: Polish Air Force War Memorial

I think the Italian community in Scotland mostly arrived long before World War II started. Many were interned during the war (and many died on the Arandora Star sinking).

Regarding Italian POWs, my mum used to tell me of a POW camp for Italian soldiers near where she lived in Kendal. No locks on the premises, and many girls cycling up there in the evening (for the cultural enhancements no doubt).

There are also many Polish descendants in Scotland from during the war.
