Northern Ireland EOD

A British Army bomb disposal team at work on a country road near Newry in Northern Ireland during the late 1980s. British soldiers set up a Wheelbarrow robot bomb disposal vehicle. Two check the remote controls on the trailer while a third checks the robot itself. In Northern Ireland, bomb disposal was carried out by No 321 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, Royal Army Ordnance Corps. From 1971 onwards, this unit dealt with an estimated 50,000 emergency calls, of which almost 5,500 were actual terrorist devices.
