Blacklisted! Barred! Refused! Amnesty! Pardon!
An article thanks to the tabloid Daily Mail from 2013.
"A pardon for thousands of Irish soldiers who joined the British to fight Nazi Germany will help make amends for the shameful way they were treated after the Second World War, Ireland's Justice Minister has said.
"The Irish Government has enacted legislation to grant an amnesty to the former troops - who were blacklisted and branded deserters at home."
Seventy-five years later! And we have to be clear here what this is all about. Soldiers on active duty in the Irish army deserting and joining the British army during the Second World War.
IRELAND A DECLARED NEUTRAL DURING THE CONFLICT. IRISH SOLDIERS DESERTING TO ENLIST IN THE BRITISH ARMY FOR THE DURATION OF THE WAR NOT SEEN AS HEROES!
Justice has been done? You the devoted reader to the blog have to decide for yourselves.
