I propose to write to Mr George Solomou, care of the Stop the War Coalition, asking him to desist from wearing the Caubeen and Hackle at public events. I further propose to sign this letter from All Ranks. I will only do this if the weight of opinion is behind me and if I have tacit approval from the movers and shakers. If, at any stage, someone PMs me and tell me to wind my neck in then I will do so. Once I have a reasonable mandate via this means, I will write to the various COs and Honorary Colonels stating my case and attaching a draft of the letter. Again if I get told to wind my neck by the great and good I will. I would urge anyone posting a reply to this poll to mind the tone and content of their replies. One hint of nastiness and I will have no option but to pull the plug. I would also ask if this can be included on the Infantry forum for maximum exposure. I would do it myself,but I don't know how to. The options will be YES or NO, no sitting on the fence on this one. My closing comment. It really grips me that someone regularly appears on national television using a proud symbol to Irish soldiers of all ranks and ages to make a political point. I find it offensive and in this age were we have to mindful of causing offence, I propose we use this opportunity to peacefully register our displeasure.
