Why did I know Mr McGarr was part of SWP–Respect? Uncanny ...

I have a dear friend who was a house parent at a youth offenders assessment centre. He is a pacific man, not given to 'military ways'. He took his charges climbing and canoeing and other adventurous pursuits until H&S intervened. His told me recently that some of the boys who were amenable to taking responsibility for themselves went into the Services and gained from so doing. I know personally one or two from my schooldays who had no home life and found the Services a place where they had something rather than not very much.
