  • Calling all members of the 62 Infantry Battalion

    I'm looking for photographs and information to add to the site www.62infantry.com from members of the new 62 Infantry battalion. Any photos of the 20th and 21st battalions are welcome (except ones of people getting locked in the mess etc...)

    Please click This Link to contact the webmaster. If possible save images as jpegs.

    Thank You.

      Where did all those No. 1s magically appear from?

      edit: aside from that, excellent photos, historical ones are really good. know anything about the (what appears to be) riot control training?

        Stores, I'd say. The Q concerned probably had a fit. Stores are for storing y'know, not for issuing......

        On the issue of riot control training, I've been informed by an uncle or 2 that FCA (as it was, way back then *tears well up in nostalgia*) infantry battalions did riot control. Probably due to the fact that the British army were earning their pay doing the same up north, and the amount of PDF sitting on the border meant that the FCA would probably be the force best able to mobilise quickly and in force. Dire straits indeed, or at least it would be if the same happened today.

          The lack of protective equipment is shocking. Taken before H&S, thats for sure.


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

              I am shocked and saddened to see myself in one of those "historical" pictures!

                I already gave you all my photos, including the flag of the infamous pirate platoon (20 and 21 bn troops)



                Oh the PDF will think twice before assaulting a position flying that banner.

                  "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

                  "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

                      They got No1s because they were doing a GOH for the Minister for an officers commission parade. See 2*s in No1s made mee sick when I saw them, we had people passing out as corporals shortly before that who had great difficulty getting them.

                      The same FCA unit in the pic doing riot control training (21 Inf) also used to practice cordon & search operations and road checkpoints (on public roads).

                          Dublin units still have problems getting No1s. The usual reason for a mass issue is that someone important is coming along, who might notice that the rabble in front of them aren't wearing No1s like they should be.

                          Shouldn't that be premier Dublin infantry battalion?

                            That photo seems to have been taken within a garisson(sp) environment. Compare the protective clothing with that seen this summer.

                              Yeah, I notice the rioters aren't wearing any protective equipment
