Irish ARRSErs poppy wreath

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I thought it would be appropriate to lay a poppy wreath at the Islandbridge Memorial cross yesterday on behalf of all Irish ARRSErs (North & South, and abroad). My father, myself, and two good friends went there yesterday afternoon.

  14. Interesting, I was under the impression that it wasn't allowed or considered taboo to do so due to the Irish Indepdence war history etc, has Ireland matured that much to draw a line under past wars with England, I do remember the Easter Parade in Dublin not so long ago with the Irish army outside the GPO, apparently a British Army Liason Officer was present.
     
  15. Good man yourself!

    I laid a wreath at the bust of Thomas Kettle in St. Stephans Green park http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Kettle with members of a society I'm in in UCD. All the people who walked by stopped for the 2 minutes silence! We were all nicely suprised! We picked up a few poppies at the legion hq in town a few days before also.
