  2. Thanks for the link, pretty interesting
     
  3. I read this story maybe 10/15 years ago, it was no mystery then who the lad was and as far as I am aware there was nothing "sinster" about it, he just put the flag there. :? Looking at the length of the colum I doubt if the flag would have made any difference regarding ID friend /foe.

  8. Quality photo,it's one of many I have on my locker at work to noise up my collegues,that and a black & white shot of some Green Jackets rattaling a rioter in 1970's Ulster.

    Glad to see the ex wife putting the boot in -
    "He would try and find ways of introducing it into conversations when he met people and when he was down the pub"

    Hehe,bloody woman,eh? I could see my Mrs pulling that shite with me as well.
     
  9. He didn't sell them in the end. I was watching the auction and he withdrew them. Not sure if he sold them privately.

    Lightweight.

    If really wanted to wind them up you would have a framed photo of the RGJ, a long handle spade, a landrover and a Cyprus tourism brochure - in Danish :twisted:
