Happy times. I was with 2 RGJ in Omagh. 1 RGJ were in Armagh I think. Only the second (and indeed final) time we had all 3 Bns in the province at the same time.

Best one if ever saw was a Vietnam film made to reassure the folks back home of the excellent medical treatment. It was graphic to day the least. Films of bits missing, burns, bullets in heads.

So graphic in fact it was never shown to the folks back home, but turned into a training film. Not sure training what mind.

It was whilst in Cyprus that 1 RGJ received the news they were a bunch of tour-guide-murdering *********.
All of them? Seriously, this is the kind of cretinous comment one finds on Irish Republican websites.

Well done you!

That was the tour after our's, as they took over from us 2nd Bn Coldstream Guards or 2CG :)
I remember being part of the detachment when we took over the villa where the farmers went to pick up the escorts in the morning to go into the citrus groves.

The guards full screw said to one young soldier, "Smith 08, cigarette!" Smith 08 duly produced a cigarette for the corporal. The corporal then said "Smith 14, light me!" Smith 14 duly produced a box of matches and lighted the corporals cigarette.

I recall thinking firstly, there are a lot of guys called Smith in the Guards and secondly, if a full screw behaved like that with us, he would become very unpopular very quickly and would probably get filled in before the week was out.

We would give 200% and more to get the job done but that kind of stuff wasn't our style.
