Northern Ireland

British security forces have been involved in the struggle in Northern Ireland since 1969, therefore a Chapter on Northern Ireland on this web site would be considered essential. However because of the political climate still going on we, the web masters, are determined not to make this a political site but a short history of the British security forces who served in the province.

We will cover this chapter in as much detail as we can, but it is a very large subject to cover. Please bear with us we gather more information for further pages. We would very much like to hear from anyone who served with the British security force's in Northern Ireland. We feel it is very important to tell the story of the people who were there. Please e-mail us if you would like to contribute to this part of the web site. All correspondences will be kept in the strictest conference
