Hi all, I'm continuing with my Northern Ireland remeniscence sessions for British troops in Kings lynn, there will soon be a display at Bridge for Heros all about the subject that any one that has served in the MoD will be welcome to visit. I'll give details nearer the time Wondered if anyone that was posted in NI could answer the following: What was it like Patrolling over Christmas? for example Did you work different hours? Where the civilians any different towards you? What were parties like? What was the food like over Christmas? Did you get any special extras or presents from the MoD? Any info would be great, i guess mostly because of security and the lack of photos, I've found it very difficult to find any info photos or stories about what happened to troops over Christmas in NI. Please use fake details if you wish.
Hi not sure if this is the right section to post it, I'm working for a veteran organisaiton. I have been given the task of finding out about the life and times of the British soldier good and bad. Any fun stories would be great but please no names for security reasons. If possible does anyone know of a good surplus source of the riot gear that was issued, and what kit was specifically issued to NI posted soldier that wasn't on general issue I have a small budget to work with, to buy a few items. Sadly, I can't stretch to a "pig" armoured vehicle! All I can think of kit wise (other than standard issue) is the N.I. gloves, flack jacket, and possibly chest webbing, but there must be alot more, any info greatly received.
