Members of the RUC and regimental colleagues line up in a guard of honour as the Union Jack draped coffin of Sergeant Michael Willets on a gun carriage passes Springfield Road Police Station. The paratrooper who died on 25th May 1971 used his body to shield 2 children from a bomb lobbed into the police station. His spontaneous act of courage earned him a postumous George Cross. 197105280208b<br />
