  • Death of Pte Alan Boyce

    It is with regret that I announce the sad and untimely passing of Pte Alan Boyce, B Coy, 12th Bn. Alan died accidentally in Kilkenny yesterday, aged 21. He joined the DF last November.

    His brother Tommy, also B Coy, 12th Bn, was killed in 2000 in a RTA.

    Alan and Tommy's father and brother are both serving soldiers in Sarsfield Barracks, Limerick. His late Grandfather also served.

        Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

                        God, that is a tragedy to lose two sons in a family in a relatively short time.

                            "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.
