Concrete Canvas looks beyond the MoD
The Telegraph
The Ministry of Defence proved such a tricky customer for Concrete Canvas, an engineering firm based in south Wales, that the firm has stopped attempting to tender for U.K. military contracts. Engineers Will Crawford and Peter Brewin developed an innovative concrete material, which can be transported in a roll and hardens when you add water. The invention slashes construction times ten-fold, and allows entire buildings to be transported in a bag.

Ottawa Citizen

There were no Americans in the North Compound at Stalag Luft III near Sagan (now Zagan), Poland, when the mass breakout occurred.
