coronation street wer on it

What shouldve been:

Copper: 'Hello?'

RE SNCO: 'Hiya, Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal..'


Sorry.. I thought it funny.

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).
I would think that the RLC EOD Unit closest to Mancester would be called out first? Where are 1 Tp 49 Fd Sqn (EOD) based? Did not look much like 'over 50KG' to me! Cordon was a bit on the small side as well.

But what do I know!
Engrs are obviously better looking on camera.. which is why the RLC werent called out.

Wimbish'll be flowing with beer come the next happy hour..

Crated? I should think just a tad...
