I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
cause tonight...we can be as one
Tonight...

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
cause tonight...we can be as one
Tonight...tonight...

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On...

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday...

UFF Mural
One particularly graphic Ulster Freedom Fighters’ (UFF) mural, painted in 1997 in Bonds Street, Derry, uses an image copied from an Iron Maiden album cover. An avenging death figure moves among the bodies of dead nationalists, with a view of the war-ravaged republican Bogside area of Derry in the background. The slogan above the mural (not shown here) read: ‘There must be no retirement. With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, each one of us must fight on to the end. We determine the guilty, we decide the punishment’.

Location and Date: Bonds Street, Derry, 1997

Question for the NI vets out there:

Approx. when did the following "NI" items come into service:

--NI olive green foul weather jacket
--NI boots (and were these the same as the "HiLeg" boots later adopted --for general issue)
--NI Gloves
--NI improved Helmet
--NI Vest (US M69 with mods)

Great photos Goldman! Your loyalty is common to your name.

Esspecially enjoy seeing that Para's in NI with old 58 webbing and SLR rifles. Agressive, tough and unbeatable. Scared the siht out of the locals. Apart from elite units such as sass, 14 intel coy they must be the hardest ASS KICKERS there.

In 1974 I had issued the NI gloves and US Flak Jacket (still had the USA makers tag)

Cheers Flukeman. Were the NI boots out that early? I understand that ammo boots were a beast to the feet and the gaiters roundly despised so I'm sure they made an impression when issued.

I don't remember ever getting NI boots during my first tour 1974-1977, I had standard issue Boots DMS and the puttees not gaiters. The NI gloves I had were the second pattern (I think) so NI gloves were issued earlier than 74. I still have mine !!!!!

Edited to add:

Had a quick look in a couple of books:

In 1973 in NI the Internal Security version of the Mark IV helmet was first issued, the lightweight urban patrol boot was being trialed and the first pattern NI glove was issued.
In 1975 ish the new type IS helmet was on issue.

Just an aside - the quote ‘There must be no retirement. With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, each one of us must fight on to the end...'

Was said by Haig during the German 1918 Spring Offensive.

Good Thread, good pics

Also, I just heard that the Black Watch is deploying to NI next, direct from Iraq - are they trying to amalgate the Highland units, or kill them off?

The black watch have been deployed to NI lots of times before. Nothing special and far less dangerous now.
