    Exactly. Maybe I watch too many CSI or silent witness, but does anybody think that they have forensics linking him to the deaths. Maybe bullets or the rifle. Would they have done anything like that 40 odd years ago

    When I joined up (43 years ago this coming Saturday) we were informed by the Swinderby Rocks that each SLR had its own 'signature'.
    It's not the man in the fight - it's the fight in the man.

    That'll cut the number of interested and eligible candidates by double figures perhaps?

    I was using him more as an example of one man with authority within his community. As an ex EDA and having spent time in recruiting I saw it as having a potential large impact on BAME recruiting. All 3 Forces spend a significant amount of their recruiting budget trying to convince people of influence within BAME communities. I suppose itís just part of policy Iím particularly interested in and I know that someone somewhere is probably sighing into their cornflakes over it.

    Unless you have been there you will never know how it makes you feel.
    A patrol will start with a briefing, you will receive an intelligence update which will include IRA and UVF attacks that have happened that week. You will also get told what the threat is, it maybe a sniper, bomber or civil unrest, thatís ok you have been exercised on all of them in Lydd, Hythe or Sennelager. You then get your patrol orders, this again will highlight the threat, and depending where you are heading to, information on the known players (terrorists) operating in that area.
    You leave the camp through various exit points your eyes the size of saucers and youíre absolutely ****ting yourself! You are on the surface calm, professional and proud. But inside you are crapping it. You are scanning every face, every window, every door way, loose brick, pile of rubbish, car, every thing that could be used as a sniper position or a place to hide an IED (bomb). But it is all ok you have been trained to deal with it all; you have had the rules, you have done the exercises and seen the training videos.
    Except it is not ok, because you are only 19 and Belfast looks like Chatham and Londonderry looks like Manchester and Fermanagh feels like the Brecon Beacons. The girls look like they do at home, that woman screaming at you looks like your Aunty Mary and the old man who has just called you a prick reminds you of your Grandad. Then it happens... and you react, you just ****ing react!!!
    Afterwards you never expect the democratic pillars that you chose to protect as a teenager, to turn on you for your reaction that day many, many years ago; you know who I mean the government, the judiciary and the media, but they all do!!!
    But you know deep down inside that unless they have done it, unless they have been there they will never ever know! The very fact that they have questioned your reaction on that day when you were still just a boy, proves that they will never know!

    Since his holiness Anphonius B'Liarus doled out love letters to his new Irish friends. It was only a matter of time the flying DOO DOOs were going to land on the soldiers. Never trusted this holy man for one bit, when he entered office the smell of backstabbing was written all over his face. Not saying Northern Ireland didn't need an enema, but to surrender lock stock and barrel, when Soldiers where there on the say so of governments at the behest of the people to protect from murdering scum on both sides of the divide. And till this day the murdering scum who bombed Enniskillen Omagh Birmingham Manchester London etc etc are laughing in their bars being lauded as heroes. Sorry lads and lasses if this gets me barred for breaching protocol

    If the Solider being prosecuted is able to remember anything from nearly 50 years ago I would be very surprised. Providing he actually survives to stand trial, we know nothing of his current health or status, this could send his health rapidly down and may not even bit fit to stand trial.

    The whole thing is a farce, and it should never reach the court.

    Unless every IRA member comes forward with all the crimes and atrocities that has been committed by the so called IRA. Never going to happen as Martin Manginess took information to the grave with himself as he stated on more than one occasion he would never DOB his mates in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So why are we going to allow the prosecution of a seventy something soldier??????????? Makes my blood boil.

    The Saville inquiry said no one would incriminate themselves otherwise no one would have testified.
