George Foggo worked in Bomb Disposal for the Royal Engineers.  His expertise came in useful when he was required to help destroy the Fortress of Mimoyecques in the Pas-de-Calais region of France. The Fortress was the modern name for an underground military complex built by the Nazi’s. It was intended to house a battery of enormous V-3 cannons which would be able to hit London [an incredible 100+ miles away]. The invasion of Normandy stopped the building, getting rid of it was another matter.
