A very powerful and graphic picture of the distinguished Belfast, Ulster, and Westminster politician and social activist, Gerard (Gerry) Fitt,... later Lord Fitt, the Baron Fitt.

"Gerry stood there motionless for more than the two seconds that the frame took."

"He was staring at his wedding album, which was burnt to a cinder on the floor, and he was just reflecting on that it was almost like a Hitchcock moment."

"He later told me that he believed that the picture got him a peerage because the British government saw that moderate nationalism didn't have a voice in the area - after Gerry Adams had taken Fitt's West Belfast seat - and a way of giving that voice to them was to put Gerry Fitt in the House of Lords."

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.

The people where he lived, didn't think so.
He was despised by them.
He took the soup.

He's knocking the Hurley ball down the beech with his Labs, in Donegal.
Looks pretty content.
