  • Pics of Irish Soldiers in Afghanistan

    Does anyone out there have any photos of the Irish soldiers serving in Afghanistan at the moment? Looked about but its bloody hard to get some!
    I knew a simple soldier boy.....
    Who grinned at life in empty joy,
    Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    And whistled early with the lark.

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
    With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.
    And no one spoke of him again.

    You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.

    Have you tried the thread about irish troops in afghanistan?


    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

                Why do you want it Buck.
                Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                Are full of passionate intensity.

                      Hey guys, I'm a bit off topic here... but I just noticed: what are the differences in beret colours ? Some wear a green one, some a black one.

                      Is it similar to us:
                      Green: Army
                      Maroon: Para
                      Red: Military Police
                      Black: Armour
                      Tan: SOF
                      "On the plains of hesitation, bleach the bones of countless millions, who on the very dawn of victory, laid down to rest, and in resting died.

                      Never give up!!"

                            looks like the US Soldier has just punched the Irish Soldier in the face and the Irish lad is coming back for more!
