    It was good to see in here at last. Tricky but fun mission getting in.

    I was actually surprised there wasn't more Typhoo memorabilia and stuff knocking about. Apart from a few murals and scraps of paper, you would never guess what this place used to be.

    the canteen didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the factory. It was more like an aircraft hangar. maybe this was repaired during the war?

    Sweet. Dweeb couldn't convince you to climb down into that festering shithole then?

    I thought much the same thing, but if you look at this picture you can see that the weird latticework was itself damaged during the war and so I'd say it's original.
