Also remember what the British troops got up to in Ireland during WW1.Black and Tans,say no more.


That was after the war.

Flora - in the North maybe. The Republic remained neutral in WWII.

Not in WW1 though, they were still part of the UK. And many Irishmen died in the wars.

I wonder if there are kids signing up who now expect more respect than was afforded in the past, as a result of the officially sanctioned heroes narrative?

Doubt it. Nobody I know who's serving classifies themselves as a "hero".

Don't tar us all with the same brush. I've been asked several times now if I wanted to be part of the Ibrox shenanigans and have always turned it down because I don't want to be associated with it - I even had a stooshie a couple of years ago with a guy I worked with because he was one of the eejits in uniform bouncing up and down in front of the Broomloan Stand. The only Forces parades I've ever taken part in are Remembrance ones.

Hear Hear. I actually stopped some of my lads doing it last year. Pile of propogandist pish.
