Tributes have been paid to the top archaeologist who helped bring closure to the anguished families of Northern Ireland’s Disappeared.

John McIlwaine, a forensic archaeologist with the University of Bradford, died suddenly last night at the age of 49.

The academic, who grew up in Portadown,…

No. I can’t believe this - John was one of life’s truly lovely people, and such a young man for this to happen. He’ll be much missed by colleagues and friends.

You’ve got to love the Dazzle Camouflage paint job… They were painted this way to confuse the U-boat captains ability to plot it’s speed and heading when trying to establish their attack angle. That’s a US Navy New York Class Battleship circa 1913… =]

Er, why does ‘Operation Petticoat’ spring to mind?
