.. Please sign the Petition

Post by Dai Robb on Thu 26 Mar - 21:38:59

Firstly I am sorry if this is the wrong place for this Rich/ maybe you could move it if it is?

Post subject: Sign the Petition for all to have RAMP CEROMONIES



We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Change the

rules regarding Ramp Ceremonies for HM Forces Personnel killed

by an act of terror, while in the Service of Her Majesty the

Queen



The bodies of the soldiers Murdered in Northern Ireland were

flown home without ceremony. This has angered members of HM

Forces: "British troops have spoken of their anger following

the disclosure that the bodies of the two soldiers murdered by

dissident republicans were shipped back to the UK as freight."



"We have been told that the soldiers were not allowed to have a

ramp service because of political reasons. We were told the

Government didn't want anything that would look like the

Troubles had restarted.



"As far as we are concerned these soldiers were shot dead in

uniform by terrorists and they should be treated in exactly the

same way as if they were killed in Afghanistan. To send their

bodies back to the UK as freight is outrageous."



When a person joins any branch of HM Forces they are

effectively on duty 24/7/365.



The Government are asked to review the crass rules that allowed

this to happen.



The Government are further requested to amend the rules on Ramp

Ceremonies.
