Welcome to the new Peel.Online

We hope you find things are quite familiar from the old site, and now much easier to use on your phone and tablet. Please let us know of any problems.

Project Description

An item donated by Mr Emanuelli, who was mistaken as an enemy alien and interned at the Peveril Camp in Peel, along with other Italian internees and other enemy aliens. Fortunately in 1942, he was able to be released after a tribunal in London.

He has written a book about his life and times called A Sense of Belonging, and sent a copy to the Ward Library.
