    In my opinion during the WW2 "Emergency" period.

    "Pictured at the Stand Down Parade for RSM Patrick "Podge" O Driscoll (1st AR)


    after 39 years of dedicated and loyal service and 23 Overseas Missions.

    Default Irish UN Troops in Cyprus.

    http://www.rte.ie/archives/2013/0305/372833-soldiers-speaking-irish-in-cyprus/


    In this RTÉ News report from 1964, Kevin O'Kelly meets some Irish soldiers who are part of a UN patrol in Cyprus. Labhrann sé le Lieutenant Todd faoi na saighdiúirí eile agus a gcuid oibre.

    Many of the soldiers are from the Gaeltacht and talk Irish amongst themselves, though they have little opportunity to speak it during their duties. O'Kelly points out that Irish was used as a secret code in the Congo, but Todd tells him they weren't long cracking it.


    The short based landrover and APC are sourced from the British Forces on Cyprus, interesting to note the Radio Op has no mag on his F.N. as does another soldier to the rear.

    Connaught Ranger.

    I love the ould fella in the background behind the radio op "Awck, sure it'll be grand so"

    Interesting to see the reference to Jadotville.
