: :was it not the black mafia who were called the falling plates.There was a documentary made in the 1970sabout when the li were posted I think in doverThey seemed to be quite slack,what I mean is an officer walked in a room they did not stand up and they did not call him sir.
The falling plates nane was the green Howard’s. they got the name at the time when we were protecting / guarding the peace line, the Howard’s were in a place that had a bell tower and the OC put a sentry in the tower BANG falling plate. They lost 4,before they stopped doing that. Others that were there and are on this site may have a different view but I was on the peace line further down at the same time and this was as I saw it
