Just had a call from PRT, who can't get to a PC,
Military History Channel 2000hrs Tonight.
Documentary about Warrenpoint with lots of
unseen footage, PRT says it's a must see,
that tells me it will be good......!

I read a very accurate autobiography which covered Warrenpoint in graphic photographic detail. That was enough for me, we see too much death and mutilation on the screens (and in life) these days

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but this is part of OUR History,
I will watch it, albeit, alone, Nuff Said.

Excellent programme, imho. I bet it took 3 hours to get a sound bite out of "nameless man". It reminded me of another marvellous chap, called Tommo (no persec issue, cos I'm sure it's not his real name). He ended up teaching civvies how to avoid treading on land mines and he served in Norn Iron, not sure as an ATO but some serious, gusset-filling stuff. He was quite mad, even his wife thought so, but I doff my "hat" to him because we'll never know what he did.

Also a certain cricketing Arrser who spent years hiding in attics, with a glass cupped to the ceiling below. And to PRT.

Thanks all.

Quite surprised they never mentioned Kilnasaggart Bridge, that ****** must have been hit more times than anything!
JD remember on takeover from H A T units you would do your advance to ambush position on the bridge and find all sorts of goodies still in place on the 80 tour I found tripflare pots still up nothing like good Opsec.
