    RIP Albert, and all the rest of our UDR comrades, murdered for just trying to carve out a better life.
    ......i concur wholeheartedly ,mate also like post #8 and jocks idea of posting the address of murdering a/holes...

    The fellow(s) that compiled the Name & Shame list that Jock posted here
    (http://www.nivets.org.uk/forums/show...and-Shame-List.)
    seem to have done that for some of the entries and it made me smile at their candour.
    eg -
    Addresses in 00 either Howth Rd Killester Dublin or Kimahuddrick Lawns Clondalkin Dublin
    and -
    Has home near to Gortahork, Donegal small cottage on coast road, white painted door and windows yard overgrown with (cotton ?)
    Other entries include similar additions about scrotes character which would certainly prejudice a court of law.
    The compiler(s) seem be serving or ex RUC with a sense of humour and a wish for justice.
    I would like to shake that persons hand.

    I particularly liked the entry about a dead one that gave his present address as HELL.

    I always had the greatest admiration for the UDR, worked with them at Sunnyside and was always glad I had the opportunty to help them with thier repairs.
    May they all rest in peace.
    Spanners do it with their tools.
