The Black and tans

The term Black and Tans refers to the Royal Irish Constabulary Reserve Force, which was one of two paramilitary forces employed by the Royal Irish Constabulary from 1920 to 1921 to suppress revolution in Ireland by targeting the IRA. Although only a small proportion of the British forces in Ireland, The Black and Tans were the fiercest and most feared, sent in March of 1920 by Lloyd George's Coalition Cabinet to make Ireland "a hell for rebels to live in." They could arrest and imprison anyone at any time. They murdered civilians. They wore a strange mixture of dark green tunis, khaki trousers, black belts, and odd headgear. Richard Bennett, a Lt. Colonel in the Army Bureau of Current Affairs, provides an accurate account of this harrowing period in Anglo-Irish history. - Publisher.

They wore a strange mixture of dark green tunics, khaki rousers, black belts and odd headgear, including civilian felt hats. The Irish named them after a famous pack of wild dogs on County Limerick - The Black and Tans. Although they were only a small proportion of British forces in Ireland, they were the toughest, the wildest and the most feared. They knew nothing and they cared nothing about Ireland. They were sent there in March 1920 by Lloyd George's coalition cabinet to make Ireland 'a hell for rebels to live in'.R."@en
