#OnThisDay 1920 The first Black and Tans were recruited into the RIC in England. 20% of them were Irish. They were not the ‘jailbirds and down-and-outs’ as oft quoted as those with a criminal record could not apply. That said, they were still a nasty bunch.

Hi, I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now. I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in. Hope you enjoy.
