It was Sunday, January 30th 1972. Thousands of people from the city of Derry had gathered to March, protesting the new internment policy happening in Northern Ireland.Meanwhile on the other side, soldiers from the first battalion of the British Parachute Regiment were preparing to monitor the march, looking for any signs of paramilitary activity.Though it was meant to be a peaceful march, there was a palpable tension in the air and what was to follow, would be the catalyst for the bloodshed and violence that would plague Northern Ireland for the next 27 years.
