Lightbulb Parading in a Wake


FUNERAL OF CORPORAL DEREK WOOD..
Quote:
The episode is remembered by many as one of the most shocking fatal incidents of the troubles, largely because of the graphic TV coverage which showed dozens of men attacking their car.. They were then taken to the grounds of the nearby Casement Park where they were subjected to further beatings, stripped to their socks and underpants, and searched..Here, the IRA took control of the situation.. The corporals were mistakenly identified as members of the SAS - the British special forces unit that had killed 3 IRA members in Gibraltar 2 weeks earlier.. The corporals were subjected to further beatings, before being thrown over a 9ft wall and driven in a black taxi to waste ground less than 200 metres away...Once there, the two men were killed by members of the IRA.. Corporal Derek Wood was shot 6 times and stabbed 4 times in the back of the neck.. Corporal David Howes was shot 5 times...Two IRA men, Alex Murphy and Harry Maguire, received life sentences for the murders, with others convicted later on lesser charges..Their families watched as the coffins, draped in Union flags, were carried from the aeroplane by colleagues, with the band of the Corps of Signals playing in the background..
