    The INLA were not concerned with civilian casualties on this one. Why we never brought the rope back I can not comprehend.

    Eight members of the Cheshire Regiment.
    Two members of the Army Catering Corps.
    One member of the Light Infantry.
    Not forgetting the six innocent civilians who also lost their lives that night.

    Always remembered.

    Puts thing into prospective when you break it down like that Jock. My father-in-law was caught in the Omagh bomb and even though his dementia is bad he still remembers that day and can take us to the place where he parked the car, where he was standing and worse the deafening silence after the blast. Very eerie.

    RIP all.
    Be who you are and say what you feel...
    Because those that matter, don't mind.
    And those that mind, don't matter!
