Across the three groups those with positive attitudes toward the army were authoritarian in their attitudes, had positive attitudes to those in positions of authority and voted for right-wing parties. In addition, N. Irish militarists were Protestant, had little personal experience of political violence, and were not anxious, while South African militarists were found to be con-formers.
