Irish volunteers fought alongside us during WW1 and WW2 so I'd dispute "every ex-serviceman" but I do know exactly what you mean. Every more recent ex-serviceman yes, I can believe that's correct.
I've never been to Ireland. I am slightly reluctant because I just have this vague feeling that "we, the English, are not liked". I am told by people who know more than me to get in the campervan, stop being a stupid bastard, and go over. That it's beautiful and would change my feelings completely.
Also, I'm friends with a number of punk bands who go over and play in Dublin. They apparently absolutely love English punk bands over there. More reason to think that my feelings are unreasonable.
I wonder if the only cathartic solution to your feelings about the Irish would be to get over there and spend some time there difficult though that might be. Goes without saying that you have to want to have your views challenged.
Only chewing the fat. And thanks for your service by the way.
