Saluting: Personnel are to salute the coffin when passing a funeral cortege. This is in general I believe; any JSP etc? What was your experience in Northern Ireland? I have been searching around the web and found this: Irish Times 12 March 1971: British troops saluting during the funeral yesterday of Mr Charles Hughes of Servia Street who was killed in exchanges of gunfire between I.R.A. Regulars and Provisionals in the Lower Falls last Monday night. Strict security precautions were in place along the route of the funeral to Milltown Cemetery.
