This website is dedicated to Paul Robert Cochrane, a fallen RIR soldier, but always a son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin to those whose lives were touched by his existence. We hope to reach others who have lost sons or daughters in the RIR services over the years, through circumstances which they feel are questionable, for example, bullying; assault; suicide or entrapment. Through sharing these experiences with others we hope to help or maybe prevent the isolation we felt, from happening to other families.

If you have endured similar treatment from M.O.D. and have suffered in silence, this is your opportunity to have your say. Honour your son's or daughter's memory on this website. If you have a story along with a photo you would like to share with us and also the readers of this website, Add Your Story
