Have you seen this article by Simon Usborne on Knockaloe published in this week's Independent. It's part of their 'A History of the First World War in a Hundred Moments' series, with the stories so far ranging from an account of the first gas attack to the wars impact on gender equality.

Although the headline focuses on the railway line the article gives an overview of internment more generally as well as on the Island.

Once you've read it, it would be great to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
