This article discusses interview material obtained on fieldwork visits to the Republic of Cyprus and Italy between 2009 and 2010. Ex-militants from four clandestine groups (EOKA, Brigate Rosse, Prima Linea and Proletari Armati per il Comunismo) were asked to speak about their entry to and participation in those organisations. The article reflects on how the memories of EOKA and anni di piombo exmilitants reflect their post-conflict situations. Victorious militant testimony from Cyprus functioned to close down the meanings that could be attributed to the conflict, while defeated militants in Italy opened up the meanings of the past through political challenge. The paper examines the splits in memory and self that emerged from the situation of ex-militant memory within defeat, and the contrasting homogenisation of memory into chronology in the situation of victory.
