Let's do a throwback and head back to The Second World War.
The peat mining operation in Burns Bog was an important and highly secret operation that helped the allies.
The process of smelting magnesium safely and inexpensively for use in artillery shells required peat.
At one time, several thousand people were employed to mine the bog for peat, after which it was shipped to Nevada to create the shells.
The ammunition was then distributed throughout the entire allied force during the war.
