    Amazing to think that all those years ago, Bomb Disposal was very low tech.

    How brave were those young men, defusing all sorts of bombs in those conditions?

    Great and very interesting video.

    Try this book, "Softly Tread the Brave" of Ivan Southall. For the French readers, the translation "17 secondes pour survivre"

    Any live or dug ordnance presented by me has been disposed of by EOD technicians.
