I'm Officer X - I served 27 years at HMP Maze Northern Ireland. For nearly 3 decades I worked with the terrorist groups IRA, INLA, UVF & UDA in the Maze Prison.
Did I ever tell you how my baton got so tarnished?
Bear in the yard - polar bear in the yard
What about the Shankill Butchers?
I wrote and read many a letter, working relationships with prisoners, I had to have one, I was their contact.
The first signs of trouble, you knew when it was going to kick off, The Maze was our 2nd home, not just a work place. You felt the mood of the men within the block. I knew from a prisoners eyes that that things were about to go bad.
We were trapped, had to get on the ground just for air.
Republicans always complained about the Maze sausages
Could you trust a terror prisoner on outside
LVF and INLA in the same Block?
The UDA were nasty & the INLA were dirty
