I’ve heard from a few now about a shin pad ECM in NI. I never came across it when I was there and I can’t find anything about it any where. Does anyone know anything about it? Cheers
TBH, I only recall it being part of Search kit. The workings of it escape me.I recall that coming in to service maybe 1988, didn’t the wire antenna run inside the trouser leg?
I cant remember the name but i remember a piece of kit worn on infantry foot patrols on the shin that was a command wire detectorI’ve heard from a few now about a shin pad ECM in NI.

And again by the late 90's it was a different bit of kit again. Looked like a bigger version of grudge.REST used two doubloons* (looked like a broom handle with a kit bag on the end), they had to be deployed at 90° to each other as the only worked in one plane. Even then this was flowed up with dragging a hook through certain areas. Even before REST deployed high resolution photography and interpretation of the area was in place. Command Wires were usually pretty obvious.
So I’ll leave it to you to determine the capability of a small electronic device held an inch above the metal eyelets of BCH.
