Subject: RE: BS: Stakeknife - Is He?
The strange scenarios we are reading about here are strikingly similar to the period around 1921/22: the history of some of it is very murky, but it seems that Michael Collins not only was commanding the Free State troops but also running a couple of units on the other (Republican) side in the north. there were,apparently, actual engagements when two lots of troops under his orders were fighting each other.
