Obviously you, as a former member of the British Army would hold that view.

Other Irish people who didn't swear allegiance to a foreign Monarch would hold a different view of the UDR.

It's important to understand the different perspectives of various posters on threads such as this.

It's not a view, it's a fact. The UDR were a regiment of the British Army and as with all tri-service members of HM Forces, are entitled to whatever pension rights their terms of service entitled them to.

Unless you know otherwise.....

The Orange Order have too much of a negative association like so much in this world. They need to get with the times. Open up their doors to Catholics & Atheists. Do they really want to be seen as the bigoted party all the time?
