  5. You got served. Brap.
  6. Ulster fry? Yes, quite widely.

    There's more to the Province than Belfast, you know. You might want to change either your first post or the thread title to show you're aware of that.
  7. I din't see anything about NI on the news. Maybe this particular journo is brewing something!!!

    No this has been done before in the history section. ken is a serious bloke and keen to let us tell how we saw it rather than it fade into the PC history of new labour no shame whitewash.
  9. "SEEN!"

    I never served in the Province but my old man did several late seventies and one early eighties tour so I'll see what I can get him to come up with if he's game.

    I know of one very good story he could tell but i've only ever heard it from my two uncles who served with him.

  11. Slipper City.....
  12. spent time at 'the mill' 93/94, and was also there 97 after it had gone (can't remember the exact year it went?) . strange on my last tour as so much had changed. Still, all seems like a lifetime ago.
