Sir: Whereas the IRA could choose the times and places of their attacks and do so in civilian clothes, anyone who put on a police uniform could be a target at any time and place ("Award of George Cross to RUC prompts Sinn Fein protest", 24 November).

Whatever Sinn Fein feel about the political bias of this force, they can surely respect the courage that their opponents showed on a daily basis over many years.

In turn I feel that the nationalists should be allowed a memorial to their own dead, who passionately believed and died in a cause that their opponents find equally odious.
