    15th June 1988 - Lisburn

    15th June 1988

    Cpl Ian Metcalf 1st Bn The Green Howards Aged 36.
    Lance Corporal Graham P Lambie Royal Corps of Signals Aged 22.
    Sergeant Michael James Winkler Royal Corps of Signals Aged 31.
    Signalman Mark Clavey Royal Corps of Signals Aged 24.
    Corporal William J Paterson Royal Corps of Signals Aged 22.
    Lance Corporal Derek W Green RAOC Aged 20.

    While doing a charity run in Lisburn, County Antrim. They had parked their mini bus in Market Square, The IRA attached a booby trap bomb to the mini bus. After running for their charity's they boarded the bus, on starting the engine the bus exploded killing all six soldiers, This outrage was condemned by all as the soldiers were running to help local charities.

    The IRA admitted to this cowardly act.

    WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

    My thoughts are with all the families on the 20th Aniversary of this terrible day. Rest Easy Lads.

    Cpl Ian Metcalfe - 1 Green Howards and colleagues

    For Metty and the boys, 20 years ago, I was in the middle of a 4 month tour of the Falklands when I got a call from Ebrington Barracks. the 2IC Maj R**** was on the phone and he told me Metty had been killed. It was another two months before I got home and returned to the Battalion to find out exactly what had happened. I had by this time been to Bradford and visited Metty's grave. I was posted back to replace Metty as the Battalion Movements clerk along with Lcpl Steve M****. Metty's Office had not been fully cleared out and we found pictures and his dress shoes.

    A Guy who did not shrink from showing the new guys the ropes, and really helped them adjust to Battalion life. A Leader amongst men and someone I am am proud to have called a friend. 20 Years on and the memories do not lessen. Stand Easy Silver.
