A photograph of loyalist prisoners holding up an Ulster Defence Association (UDA) pennant inside the Maze prison around 1977. The Maze prison, on the site of a former Royal Airforce station of Long Kesh on the outskirts of Lisburn in Northern Ireland was used during the Troubles (a period of intercommunal violence and strife which lasted for approximately 3 decades from the 1960s to 1998, when the Good Friday Agreement ended outright hostilities) to house paramilitary prisoners. It was closed in 2000 and partly demolished. The reverse of the photo reads: 'Hi Wes, Tell all the boys Sam and I were asking. See you in May. Sam will see you in June. Eric.'.
