Cordon seems a bit small......
one of the bomb squad seen leaving the gay blokes house doing his trousers up!!
I've seen another - the 1 Tp guys dont have any pies in their mitts.
I thought it was RLC bomb disposal?
What shouldve been:
RE SNCO: 'Hiya, Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal..'
Sorry.. I thought it funny.
Now youve gone and done it unless of course this a huge wah!
I know...........I am in the RLC but check out the RE and what they do and therefore why they are featured in this episode.
I'm sure I was told that RLC had the lead in clearing ordnance in UK, but I came across this:
So what was the device?
Looked like a mortar bomb to me. Not British, though.
Or was it? Could have been a 3", but I can't remember what the Corrie bomb looked like now.
Looked more like a shell than a mortar bomb or aerial bomb, but who knows ....
Why the Airborne berets?
With the recent letter bombs in the uk, the news featured the bomb disposal teams and they were on both occasions from the RLC bomb disposal unit. I didnt see corrie tonight so see what cap bade they were from.
Seriously..whats the difference between the bomb disposal units in RLC and RE???
RLC deal with terrorist devices and as a rule of thumb the Royal Engineers deal with air dropped ordnance over 50Kg, but both can do either if operationally necessary.
They were wearing para berets because they are from 1 Tp 49 Fd Sqn (EOD) which is part of 33 Engr Regt (EOD).
