My first taste of Northern Ireland. Equipped with Ferret scout cars, Saladin armoured cars, and the glorious Saracen APC. We covered 53% of the border between NI and the republic. Based at Omagh we covered most of West Tyrone and the whole of Co Fermanagh. So different to my second tour (4 months in urban Londonderry). That 18 month tour was an experience I would not have missed for anything.
