    24 October 1990

    25 year's ago today, 5 Kingos lost their lives along with Patrick Gillespie.

    A very sad loss for the Kings Regiments and the lads families and friends.

    Gone but not forgotten lads.

    And we are meant to believe that the driver of the VIED (Vehicle Improvised Explosive Device), prior to the explosion and a man threatened by Terrorists to stop working on an Army Base, didn't report the fact prior? RIP Mr Gillespie.

    Another year passed and we are all a year older. Those lads will always be the same age.
    Rest easy Kingos. R.I.P. Patsy.

    RIP. I didn't go this year, to many funerals, to many memorials, so many memories, maybe if the KINGO's on arriving in Ballykelly hadn't pissed off the AAC things might have been different?

    I fancied some happy time so the night before went to a Soul Night in Manchester and had a great time. Roll on London.
