A reposte to Dukinfield views
This photograph is reproduced with no apology. It was taken in Palestine in July 1947 and shows the bodies of two hanged British army sergeants, Mervyn Paice and Clifford Martin, murdered by the Jewish terrorist group The Irgun. The bodies were booby trapped and the resultant explosion severly injured the officer trying to remove the bodies.
The odious leader of the Irgun, Menachim Begin, was later elected as Prime Minister of Israel.
The quality of the photograph leaves a lot to be desired. It is the only photograph known to exist of this barbaric crime, unlike other crimes in the 1940's which received, are still receiving, the full Hollywood treatment.
