Remember The Somme

I'm sick of having the battle of the Somme shoved doon my neck because some Orangemen died in it.
You do know that thousands of others died in it too right?

The Orangemen who died were gagging to kill people anyway. They had formed as a unit to fight against the crown but as that wasn't happening they then joined the war effort.

Well they learned their lesson, usually it's Loyalists ganging up on someone but this time they had the Germans and the idiot English in charge to deal with.  No wonder that many of them were too frightened to join up when WWII came around.

Bless them all and no one higher than the other for the Catholic Irishman paid the same price as the Protestant Irishman.
