These are Londonderry 1978 ?





I do recall on one of his tours he was called back to Court in NI for 'brutality' .
Apparently he was on patrol in Ulster on a Saturday night. They had a new and quiet lad in his section. Some drunken paddys spotted this, and tried to take the lads SLR off him.
Chris waded in with his rifle butt !
