In Memory Of Volunteers Dessie Grew & Martin Mc Caughey
East Tyrone Brigade of the Provisional Irish Republican Army
Both Volunteers were killed
in an operation by undercover British soldiers. The British Army's 14 Intelligence Company, which was a secret undercover intelligence unit, also known as the DET, were monitoring three AK47s at a farm building in this rural part of County Armagh and were aware that the IRA Volunteers were due to remove the guns.
As the pair approached an agricultural shed which was being used to grow mushrooms and also thought to have been an IRA arms dump, as many as 200 shots are believed to have been fired at them. Autopsy results showed Dessie Grew had 48 bullet wounds and Martin McCaughey had been shot 12times . British Army reports of the shooting stated that the two men left the shed holding two rifles, again british propaganda and lies . Both Volunteers were unarmed
when the crown forces open fire on them. The SAS was all out to kill them that didnt give the volunteers time to surrender they just killed them.
