Introductory exchange at the Bloody Sunday Inquiry in London between Lord Saville and Colonel Ted ‘Noddy’ Loden on 16 June 2003

Loden was the Company Commander of Support Company of 1st Battalion the Parachute Regiment on Bloody Sunday. His Company were responsible for all of the casualties on Bloody Sunday. He was shot dead in Nairobi, Kenya in September 2013 by ‘armed intruders’.

LORD SAVILLE: Colonel, a number of the barristers have asked me if they could take their jackets off because they were rather warm. If you are feeling hot, please do so.

COLONEL LODEN: A. No, sir, this jacket was made by Mr Ah Li in Hong Kong, designed for the purpose.

LORD SAVILLE: Thank you. Perhaps the barristers will take note of that.
