Going back to those two poor under cover (Sigs?) blokes who blundered into that IRA funeral in Belfast, they were dragged out of their car, beaten and murdered by the crowd (still haunts me that television news footage). When I was in, many moons ago, the buzz was that on searching them before they were shot one of them was found to be carrying his SOXMIS card (everyone in BAOR had to carry one to report sightings of SOXMIS vehicles). This having the bit where it says "if you spot a SOXMIS veh phone Herford 123456", when this was noticed by the murderers they thought it said Hereford and that these guys were therefore from the SAS. Is this true or is it another urban myth? Only asking because a civvie told me this today again as gospel. For the curious SOXMIS= Marked Russian intelligence gathering car.
