The generosity of the Belfast people is unbelievable. I was having a smoke in the Beer Garden at the Welders Club. A man came over and spoke to me. His name was David Mealey. I was admiring the badge on his blazer. We got to talking and it turns out his family and my family lived next door to each other in the 40's & 50's. He asked me if I liked the badge. I said " it was beautiful". He said  " It's yours " and started to take of his blazer. I said " No you can't do that ". He called a woman over and asked her to  cut it of his blazer. He was presented with it for 22 years loyal service in the Royal Irish Regiment. And here it is.
