  • In Memorium. 1980 Lebanon.

    Dear Forum Members,

    28 Years Ago this weekend saw the start of the Battle of At Tiri.

    In the battle one Irish soldier, + Private S. Griffen +,

    and 1 Fijian soldier + Private S. Sonanavaluwere +

    to loose their lives.

    Shortly after this an Irish re-supply convoy to the Irish positions in the "Enclave" was

    hijacked, the Irish troops disarmed and made captive,

    two of the Irish being subsequently murdered in Cold-Blood:

    Privates: +Tom Barrett and Derek Smallhorne. +

    May they Rest In Peace.

    Comrades Gone To Their Eternal Reward And Not Forgotten.

    (ex-member "C" Company, 46th IRISHBATT, UNIFIL.
