Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Remember seeing a list of battalions/units and the dates in which they served in N.I.
    Tried google,but no joy.

    Anybody got a link?
  2. Still no luck. Trying to find the Regiment that was in Forkhill/XMG May '79.
  3. I think you are looking for 2nd Battalion, The Royal Green Jackets. They were in Armagh April-August 1979.

  5. 2 Para were there, obviously. I seem to recall the Blues and Royals were around as well. I was in Belfast at the time.
