    How surprising!
  3. Pales into insignificance compared to our lot losing hundreds of weapons / IT / explosives / classified documents over the years. Point taken though, good effort fella

  7. What should they have done??Fired at a fuel tanker in a built up area??Was the incident an immediate and direct threat to life??No.The gates were locked.They were rammed.
    The guy got in unnoticed.Not like that has never happened before in the history of any militaries installations.If he had been caught he would have been given a "warm" welcome,detained and handed over to the Gardai who would have prosecuted him for trespass on a DF base and trying to pervert the course of justice.
    But he wasn't.They will get him in the long grass.The wheel always turns.
    Certainly a case for more cameras and a stronger gate though.

  8. So there. The Gard are now scouring any patch of long grass looking for wheel-marks. Case closed.

  15. In answer to your question, because I know you're dying to know; just about every one that had facilities for landing a helicopter. Almost without exception, the lads and lasses I met on these visits had a wonderful sense of humour. I guess you must have been the exception.
