      RGJ needs to remember where he is when he goes making comments like that. He can always **** off back to arrse.

        Lads, cool it. And, for the record, GF started it.
        "Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight - we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy." Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.

          so it's ok to launch into 'surrender in Iraq' but how dare i mention the Congo?

          listen to all the armchair soldiers - that's all you will ever be

          i've walked the walk, where have lot you ever been?

          this started off as a decent thread but the usual suspects had to hijack it.

            Says the west brit recruiter. Do you get a bonus for every bod recruited?

            We're all "armchair soldiers" here, none of us are typing from a foxhole.

            No you've stated you've walked the walk, we can all pretend to be whatever we want to be, for all we know you could be a cake fiend in a call centor in brixton.

            If you really are in the BA RGJ I genuinely do hope I come across you when I have pips on my rank marking.

            EDIT: and calling the congo affair a surrender truly shows how any Irish allegiance you had is long gone considering that was the tact taken by the British gutter press. No doubt you're buying your William and kate commemorative stuff already.

              Will I go on?
              please do Goldie - as that seems to match a list of conflicts that the Irish DF have been involved in either

              probably one of the villages the Irish DF have never set foot in perhaps?

              that's rich Jack considering most of you went crawling over to ARRSE after they were prepared to bail IMO out - perhaps you should remember the helping hand they offered.

              how easy you forget eh?

              anyhow, touched a nerve have i?

              this started off as a relative thread but the usual suspects had to hijack it.

              in keeping with the thread i know one thing though - when we do conduct combat operations, our soldiers are some of the best protected in the world with the Mk7 Helmet, Osprey Enhanced Body Armour, Combat Ear Protection, and now pelvic and lower limb protection.

                Its good that eventually good kit is in use, how many people died in Iraq and Afghanistan because the kit was gash or non existant?

                  The british army did surrender in iraq. Face it.

                  As for Conflicts the Irish defence forces have been involved in, as yet our government does not feel the need to assist the USA in its wars.

                  But I am pleased to have rattled you. My work here is done for today. See you tomorrow.

                    how can i face it? i was there - were you? and we are STILL in Iraq - so where is the surrender?

                    and i don't give a fcuk about the politics behind the wars - i joined the Army to see a bit of action and i have - so what if we follow the USA - i'm the one doing the soldiering, experiencing and enjoying it.

                    as for being rattled? this is an online forum - nobody gets rattled on a forum, so dream on pal. i've served in hostile places you will only ever read about Goldie, those are places where men can get 'rattled'.

                    who are you again?

                    and i don't have a clue how many died because kit was gash or non existant? would you like to enlighten us?

                    however we must consider ourselves lucky, if we were equipped as poorly as the Irish DF we could have hundreds more casualties.

                    our kit is second to none.

                    and keeping on thread - other forces have tried offer protection in this area which has proved ineffective and cumbersome in combat - finally a decent compromise seems to have been reached, and our lads are lucky to be issued with it.

                      Which bit?

                      Can you HONESTLY say that all your issues kit is better than that available to other Armies? If it is so good, why is the UK unable to sell its main peices of equipment to anyone other than the BA? If it were that good they wouldnt need to Buy armoured vehicles from the Italians and Americans, , Pistols from the swiss, rifles from Germany and the USA.
