The Mirbat Fort Oman by Beano Boy

                                                            The Mirbat Fort Oman
                                                     
                                                            For The Hereford Lads


                        This was the Fort which nearly became their ALAMO.  
There was a British 25 Pounder Gun where those stones are       
piled up outside the Fort.                                                            


                           The SAS fought a battle here 19 July 1972 it was their Rorkes Drift        
     Out numbered 25-30 to one they stood their ground.Why?                 
          Because they were there,and nobody else.                                                


                                                     Above the BATT House at Mirbat    
                                          Nine defended this against overwhelming odds.            
For some it was their last stand. Others beat the Clock!

There are many more and here are just a few.


                                              I wonder if they lock up at night?


                                                 I call this one above "INSPIRATION."

This mud brick rendered Fortress seems to have grown out of the very rock formation itself after a magical seed had been blown there upon such a wind of change.

Often is the case that imagination is stirred and certain elements in pictures can help with scratch building projects. BB
