Honouring the men who gave all

Recently I bought a World War I commemorative poppy style badge bearing the inscription, ‘All gave some, some gave all’.

I intend to wear this emblem from now until November this year in honour of men, from the whole island of Ireland, who sacrificed themselves for us.

Whether it was the 16th or 36th Division etc, Catholic or Protestant, northern or southerner, unionist or nationalist, it doesn’t make any difference.

Surely the time has come for Gerry Adams’ crowd to stop spitting on the memory of these brave men. They fought with honour and at no time did they give orders for the abduction and murder of widowed mother of ten, Jean McConville or the rest of the so called ‘Disappeared’.

Why not join me? Buy a badge and, regardless of what Mr Adams’ bigots may say, dare to honour these brave men from our island home.
