John Smeaton - Hero For Our Time

Thu Jul 12, 2007 8:44 pm


He's the guy who tackled one of the terrorists at GLA. Since then, some folk have set up this website and also asked people to pledge to pay for a pint for the man.

If you look at the above website, you'll find a place where you too can pledge a pint to John Smeaton.

Someone else has also rewritten Flower of Scotland in honour of Mr Smeaton.

O John of Smeaton
When will we see your like again
That fought and panned in
two al qaeda men
And stood against him
Osama’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

The airport’s bare now
And cherokee’s lie burnt and still
O’er land that is saved now
Which brave sir smeato held
And stood against him
Osama’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

Those days are passed now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again
That stood against him
Osama’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

So, anyone else gonna pledge a pint tae the big man?
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
