Unit History

If anyone has any stories or anecdotes  from 6th or 7th Regiments, we’d like to collect them before the get lost! A sort of oral history. These are all stories we’ve heard many times from someone ‘who was there’…but never got them on record. If you can take the time to write them out and email to info:62regiment.ie…please do. We’ll collect them and you never know…we might even publish them (with names changed to protect the guilty!).
