South Armargh 79-80 tour ,one of our search teams , doing an occupied house search pulls open bedroom draw and find quite a lot of condoms. keeps stum and carries on the search, meanwhile at the time a lot of cars were getting stolen , the search commander asks the householder does he have any info on any stolen cars? "no soldier" came the reply. Eventually the search comes to its end , the search commander takes the home owner around the house to check for any damage . He askes the same question "no" came the reply , on cue search commander pulls open draw , exposing the pile of condoms . And states if you bullshit me , i will tell your Parish Priest whats in this draw ......cue paddy singing like an cannery , with some good GEN .

We were on the outskirts of Crossmaglen just after dusk, when the platoon commander found s child's doll on a tip. Platoon commander pulls head off doll and srews it on the top of his right angle torch (complete with red fiiter) as we re-enter the village he spots a shop that has just closed up and two girls sitting on the counter chatting as they have turned off most of the lights in the shop except for the one over the counter the front of the shop and street are in the dark. Platoon commander switches on his torch and places the dolls head against the window and knocks on it. I could still here the girls screaming as we ran down the road as fast as we could.Look Zulu's Thousands of em
Why us Colour Sergeant, why us?
Coz were here son, there's nobody else?

On a Farmer's daughter in Fermanagh. Pte S. stops in to have a chat with a Prot farmer and we carry on. He's at the back so I don't see him until he gets back in the gate at Kinawley. By then we'd had about 100 complaints.
The farmer had given him a framed print of King Billy and he'd stuck it in his web strap, over his chest. It's a Sunday. We'd just passed about a million rat catchers heading home from church."Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth."

Merlyn Rees, NI Secretary was going to visit so we were volunteered to dig out out, clean and spruce it up. After the best part of a decade full to the brim with squaddies. Nice. We might have called it the Hilton, but salubrious it wasn't.
Barsteward never bothered.

Somebody told me years ago that some Crab officers chucked Merlyn Rees into a fountain when he was paying an evening visit.Dr Johnson: 'Any man thinks less of himself for not having been a soldier, or not having been to sea.'

Of course when the ceasefire broke in 1996 troops were deployed back into the border stations that weekend. Back into the knackered mk10 accommodation 'that the Army would never need again' and they stayed in it until 2005. Not the same ones obviously, we let them out now and again!
Just before the ceasefire broke there was a plan to remove the blast wall from around Belcoo station and have it completely open to the public. That plan got kicked into touch very quickly.

Reason: To fix even worse grammar than usualThe Provisional IRA has largely disarmed, though it prides itself on being an undefeated army: yet here the Shinners will see the British army marching through the streets of Belfast, thereby reminding people what an undefeated army really looks like, and worse, how utterly pointless the IRA war really was.

VCP near the Maze, car driver at the head of the queue gets out and starts ranting at the (short tempered) cutoff, 'kin great bloke gets out of the truck behind and storms up... I double over expecting war to break out and arrive to see truck driver 'explaining' to car driver that "these (smack) lads (smack) are only (smack) doing their (smack) Job (smack)" Brightened my whole day.
