True Heroes

Four small boards from Ballyearl Drive in New Mossley, at the bonfire (see Welcome to New Mossley) and on fencing around an area to be re-landscaped. 36th (Ulster) Division, “Three Scottish soldiers murdered by scum 1971″ (John McCaig, Jospeh McCaig, Dougald McCaughey), and “New Mossley supports our troops.”

The UDR board would next year (2010) travel across the street, to the fencing around the bonfire area as a pitch and playground were built.
