    This built on the A1 just outside Newry by the Sappers once D Coy 1RWF had dug a full defensive position on the 2 or 3rd Jan ’88. It took us 36 hrs in solid rain to dig in by hand with 3 man trenches, sleeping bays, wire and full OHP - mortar threat was v high. The northern Pl trenches flooded to waist deep for a couple of days during the Op. Temp was below freezing at night. Never a dry sock - happy days
