Made me smile all the way up the A6 following someone who had spray painted out the 'London' bit on every signpost - must have used three tins!

If you go back in a week someone else will have been along and sprayed over the 'derry' bit that is left which then forces the council to come along and re-paint all the signs. It is a game that has been keeping the natives amused for years.

I know a few people that have been to Londonderry in recent years for the first time since the '70s and none of them can believe it is the same city. Apparently it has changed beyond all recognition in the last 40 years.

Maybe we can have a weekend break in Basra in years to come, or Dutch style cannabis cafes in Helmands green zone.

Bearing in mind , these chaps have incredibly long and selective memories , what reception would a serving or former soldier , especially one whos done Banner get? I understand peace tours are big business in the north however could a former soldier walk down The Falls revisiting his former exploits?

Yes, no problem whatsoever. Your even advised to wear your old clobber in a kinda 'tribute' sort of way - the locals lap it up.....

I wonder how much fun you could have driving an old snatch around the province? You could do one of those Channel 4 style travelogue programes..... this week on "who thought a green vehicle could cause so much trouble" we will be in XMG:) I wonder how many would call the confidential number if we repainted it on the side?:)
