Remember it well. Hatred filled the entire region for months afterwards, manifested by a huge increase in tit for tat sectarian killings.

For those of you who are unaware, ditching the Good Friday Agreement for Brexit purposes could very easily lead us back to something similar.

How they didn't kill stone when they tracked them down..

Beat him unconscious.

The police/army must have been on them in seconds.

No chance. Two serving British soldiers deciding to tour West Belfast during a funeral of someone killed by a loyalist paramilitary mourning a murdered IRA member? Don't think so.

I live near that area and there could be no "wrong turn" to accidentally land you outside Sinn Fein head office.

Definitely some sort of covert observation mission gone wrong imo. The fact that the government has never given a proper explanation for their presence only reinforces my view.

State of those Ambulances, It was 1988 not 1958.

I donít know Belfast well, but canít imagine that 30 years ago it was a good place for off duty soldiers (or anyone) to do a bit of sight seeing
