14th August 1967 & 1969


Recommended Posts

At midnight of 14 August 1967 the Marine Broadcasting (Offences) Act came into operartion heralding the demise of "popular" music as we knew it.





On 14 August 1969 something much more serious happened in Northern Ireland.


1330 The RUC Inspector General requested the Ministry of Home Affairs request military aid in support of the civil power.


1500 The RUC were exhausted & the USC were mobilised


1500 The Prime Minister of Northern Ireland requested the British Prime Minister supply troops.


1630 The British Prime Minister & Home Secretary agreed to send in troops.


1700 British Troops (1st Battalion The Prince of Wales's Own Regiment) crossed the River Foyle to enter the Bogside in Londonderry.


The rest is history as they say.
