We were supposed to go to Castlereagh RUC in late 1973, but it was put back about 4 months and we were sent to Maze prison instead.

So we had to do extra Ulster training.

So they stuck us into the forests outside Hohne where the snow at the time was over
6 ft deep ! No one could see each other, it was total madness and extremely cold.

I tried to explain to our 'troopie' that what we were doing was stupid as they don't have the extreme cold and snow that deep in Northern Ireland and they didn't have forests in central Belfast either.



Only rain....... lots of it!! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
