33 Fd Sqn went to NI (yet again) late 1973 (October I think) until 1974 (early March I think) Based at Castledillon halfway down the Portadown to Armagh road. We rebuilt Newry, Newtownhamilton Keady copshop blast walls and did major repairs to Crossmaglen fencing after a bomb blast.

The squadron returned to Longmoor and the advance party for the permanent posting to Antrim went out to NI in late May 1974. I went with the main party a little later and left for sunny Hohne in October 1975.
