Stephen Travers, one of the band members who survived the ambush, also vowed to ratchet up the pressure on London to answer questions.

  “In a word they must stop stonewalling all the evidence — the mountains of evidence that says there was collusion,” he said.

“Obviously, from my own personal point of view I don’t even need any of this evidence. I was there, I saw the British army officer in control that night.

  “He wasn’t that worried about hiding his identity because he thought we’d be dead in 20 minutes.

  “We’re still here, and we’ll still keep on trying to get the truth.” (Irish Examiner)
