ask the same question on the 26armoured engineers facebook site , for it was they who took tanks into Belfast allbeit sans any ammunition of any type .
the roumer at the time was that customs and exercise spent two whole days searching the avres for duty fee booze an fags . Dont know if that was true coz i was in 31 AES at the time .A sapper with an idea is like a monkey with a hand grenade

When you re-enact the inevitable massacre scenes featuring British soldiers , can you at least try to get the extras to shrink their berets and stuff balled up newspaper in their webbing ? It just adds to the realism .
The other thing others always get wrong is the blokes playing soldiers are far too old , the average tom is about 19 , not 35.Overactively underachieving for almost half a century.

So 40 years later it all just becomes a piece of TV junk so that you creatures can flog air-time to personal injury lawyers, go-compare and boots. (You're welcome BTW)A king was asked to describe a happy man and he replied: "A man that I do not know and a man that does not know me."

It'll be another UTV republican grief-whorefest, probably to be aired after "UTV Live & Gaelic Football at 6"

I've still got my old beret that I wore in Northern Ireland. You can rent it off me for a gazzillion quid. I want it back though. Only problem is Motorman was a year before I got there!I was a good runner in the mob. I alway's liked to think I could get out of trouble quicker than what I got into it!
