Bunker from another time and another place
My dad just sent me this picture of the school he went to in Yemen. I guess for a little while it was used as a station for the military. In the 1950s and 1960s, much of Yemen was still under British Colonial rule so there was a lot of friction between the Arabs and the Brits so it wouldn't have been uncommon for schools and other public buildings to be taken over temporarily by the military. These men don't really seem to be planning a strategic offensive against the Limeys though, instead it seems that their primary objective is to chill.
