Actual or Ex Legionnaire - Donator
On the Irish Problem. I recall never a problem between the ex-Squaddies and ex-Provos in the Legion. They all got drunk together. The only Irish Nationalist fueled violence I ever saw was on St Patrick's day one year. We were sitting in one of the Chambres on a Sunday afternoon, a case of Kronnies open and Irish Music was playing. The lads were singing and we were all getting drunk. A "French" Legionnaire came in and wanted to know why they were flying the Italian Flag and everyone went quiet until that is Paddy got up and punched Frenchie in the head and threw him outside.
