The Telegraph: Launch of £1m appeal for our bomb disposal heroes

September 12, 2011

Lord Ashcroft tells why he is supporting a new appeal aimed at helping British Army bomb disposal experts as they readjust to life in the UK after serving in Afghanistan.

It was on a mild, spring day last year that I discovered that Britain’s bomb disposal teams are a breed apart.

I had been invited to spend a day at Merville Barracks in Essex, observing and participating in the training of servicemen from 621 EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Squadron, part of 11 EOD Regiment.

    I approve the appeal of Lord Ashcroft, aimed to help British Army bomb disposal experts, as they, who are an essential support to British Army, are at high risk of live on their duty.
    I thanks Lord Ashcroft also on name of army bomb experts.
    King regards Claudio Alpaca
