From my understanding David Howes and Derek Wood, were victims of this [Herford/Hereford] No comedic value I appreciate......:(
 
I took my Motorcycle test in Hereford...................I failed to see a Boathouse of any Hue. Although I could ride my VFR750F after taking said test
 
Hurricanes hardly ever happen?

I heard it was an old Soxmis card in a wallet that did for them. (Not sure the possible misunderstanding would have made any difference, though. It still said British Army.)

Even today, that is one incident that really makes my blood boil

Yes, it was horrible. I was in Washington State at the time. A 'Dame of the British Empire', as UK wives of US WW2 soldiers styled themselves then, said, 'I'm of Irish Catholic background and I abhor what I've just seen on the TV.'

It was a dreadful own goal for Irish republicanism.

Thinking about it, it marked the end of that particular chapter in terms of US support and 1989 brought a whole other focus into popular consciousness. NI became something of a sideshow.
