now op banner has come to a close - does anybody have any tales of dodging the fun police (provost staff, RMP, SIB etc)for a night on the tear in NI. Why was it that all the best spots were always listed on the OOBs list? I recall early 90s at Lisanelly bks, Omagh. To reach our designated OOB establishment we had to firstly get past the camp gestapos. This would either be extraction through main gate opposite silver birch hotel or through UDR camp St Lucia across the rickety bridge. we would have a convoy of clean cars with gated soldiers stuffed into boot. if our own company was on guard then bonus, bribe the gateman with 20 fags - laffin. Once out it was a race to Kellys in portrush to get hammered. this place was coated with talent and still is. This place would kick out at 1 so we would then follow the convoy into either Belfast for the network or Banbridge for Circus Circus. time to watch the clock from here as we had to get back to lisanelly before the guard changed. It was always a game of cat and mouse.
