Whores and hangers oners.  :D

Remember the bravery and deeds of the Men & Women of the USC, RUC, RUC Reserve, the UDR, PSNI, but most of all the British Army.

Ah, good old David. A suave, urbane, intelligent and humorous man. Thanks for the photos Welder. Pity that some boringly predictable and banal comments spoil what most people like about a browse through these photos - a peaceful and private set of reminiscences and nostalgic feelings.

Most often, comments have been to praise those who enrich the Forum with their contributions; pity that they are now being marred by tired humour. Mr Niven would not have approved. If anybody wants to make derogatory comments, take the photos and post them to another section. Meanwhile, let the rest of us enjoy them without the puerile nonsense!

Well said G and T. All of what you say about Mr. Niven is correct.

The moon is a balloon was a wonderful read and showed a new

perspective on his life. Not many like him around now.

Also correct about those with the tired humour, I do hope they listen

and go elsewhere.

Niven was a story teller of some genius, The Moons a Balloon  and Bring on the Empty Horses are absolute classics and I couldn’t care less if they are figments of Nivens imagination they are an insight to a Hollywood at that time . The classic line of course being his quote of Alexander Korda “ they think I know [censored] nothing , I tell you I know [censored] all “ !

The courageous deeds and sacrifices of the RUC and UDR must never be airbrushed from history .

“You are standing on, or are about to visit, one of my favourite places. The jewel in the crown of the fabulous coast of Antrim. A site of World Heritage and therefore ranked alongside Mount Everest and the Giant Redwoods of California for it’s importance to humankind. Volcanic activity helped Finn Mc Cool forge this wonder of the World some 60 Million years ago. It is today the habitat of rare plants and animals. Please treat their home with the pride and the care it deserves.”
