:: British Army On The Rampage ::

by Sean Connolly



First came the misery of training in freezing conditions for a deployment in a very hot climate. Then came the decision to send one hundred trained lunatics running around in dense jungle, armed with live ammunition. And they called this the solution?...

:: Rifleman William McFadzean 1895-1916 ::

Rifleman in the 14th Battalion of the Royal Irish Rifles, William McFadzean was a Belfastian war hero of conspicuous bravery and unwavering courage.
McFadzean was awarded the Victoria Cross for an act of bravery that saved many of his fellow soldiers but cost him his life in the trenches of World War I.

McFadzean died at the Battle of Somme when a box of hand grenades slipped in a trench during preparations. Two safety pins dislodged but McFadzean threw himself on top of the box, killing himself to save many others from being killed or badly wounded from the blast. Only one other soldier was injured.

McFadzean's father was presented his son's Victoria Cross in 1917 by George V at Buckingham Palace.

McFadzean's Victoria Cross is now displayed at The Royal Ulster Rifles Museum in Belfast.

:: MRF Shadow Troop by Simon Cursey ::



The untold true story of top-secret British military intelligence undercover operations in Belfast, Northern Ireland, 1972-1974.
Much has been talked about SAS involvement in Ulster. Also that of 14 Intelligence Company. Not so with the MRF...

The Mail on Sunday together with BBC Panorama had a a field day with all the 'over the top' media hype by which I'm sure most of you have heard about. With claims that the MRF Unit had targeted unarmed, innocent civilians and had evidence. But as always, all was media hype and no evidence was produced at all, the MRF never targeted unarmed civilians. Grab your copy of one of the Best-selling books currently to date.
