Sure, I like dags. I like caravans more
#310 - 365
Everyone in Moneymore is aware of the large black metal buildings just outside town. This was a Supply Depot built by men of the 107 Engineers, US Army. Units of 34 Infantry Division, 107 Engineer Battalion and 112 Engineer Battalion arrived in Northern Ireland aboard ships in January and March 1942.
A total of 16 large “Iris” supply huts were erected at Moneymore as well as the various roads, drainage etc required.The huts were erected in 8 pairs with each hut being 35 feet wide.
Some are in reasonably fair condition for being over 70 years old, and when I visited them some had been used to store various farming stock and machinery, oh and the odd caravan.
