Lion Rock


Every year the Republicans/communists errect a flag on top of the rock. The flag is about the size of 5 houses and can be seen for miles. Police had to go and take it down, then the baddies started boobytraps on the top path and eventually in the flag pole itself in attempt to take some of us out. The devices were lethal and quite nasty in themselves.

The only military fatality of the 1967 Confrontation-occurred near the top of the 'Rock' :an army EOD officer was taken to the site by helicopter to investigate a 'suspicious object and accompanying red flag with inflammatory writings...'...sadly,the brave man was killed at the location on the explosion of a bomb.
