Re: Mick Herbert and Joe Cotton shooting

Thanks for posting these, as I wrote in a Hawk in Ireland I was on a night off with my half troop from Newry and was at Gosford that night.

Mick Herbert and Joe Cotton shooting

Newspaper cuttings I kept of the incident: img014.jpg img015.jpg Needless to say the actual story is very different from what the papers say!
