Photo Caption:

The Stilo Lighthouse was in operation throughout World War II and came through the hostilities practically unscathed. However, it did sustain some damage right at the end of the war when an unidentified aircraft fired a few rounds at it smashing some of the lantern panes. But the damage was not enough to put the lighthouse out of action for long. Following repairs it came back into service in April 1946 and has been active without interruption ever since.
