    No, I can't say that I have. At the moment I'm quite happy just to survive!

    By the way, that card was issued (I think) in 1974 for my tour in the Lodge. I don't remember what I did with the one I had for Andersonstown. maybe us Brit squaddies from the 70's/80's should pool our resources for the benefit of others on this forum. What do you think?

    Or as was stated in RoE regs ("Yellow Card"), If you believed you saw a weapon, you returned fire.....

    Unless I am mistaken Harry, the infamous "Yellow Card Rules"!! With "British Army. Halt, or I fire!" given 3 times before being allowed to fire unless in direct contact and taking fire/casualties!!
