  2. Posted today on Facebook from RUIR
    Good morning everyone and we wish you a happy Wednesday. As you know, this year is the 70th Anniversary of VE - DAY. Significantly it is also the 75th Anniversary of Bomb Disposal. In recognition of their dedication to carrying forward the memory and spirit of the wartime bomb disposal teams on the Home Front, our friends and colleagues at 25th BD Company Royal Engineers Living History Group have been exclusively invited to attend a special service to be held at St. Pauls Cathedral, London and afterwards to be part of a unique BD tour of sites in London in association with 29th EOD Squadron and 22rd EOD Regiment. Well done to Captain Mike Authers for demonstrating that all dedicated living historians have a recognised and vital contribution to make to Remembrance and Education.

  6. Re. 100th Birthday Major Francis Budd RE.. Thank you for the demo which achieved what was wanted!
    We'll look forward to seeing the disc in due course.
    We have the necessary papers for the French Government's generous offer - we need a similar gesture from our own for the Bomb disposal heroes?

    All good wishes,

    Digby H-H

  7. Dear all

    Many thanks to all of you who supported our event over the weekend, we really appreciated you giving your time and some of you travelling large distances to be with us.

    Although the event was quieter than some we have held in the past we have had very positive feed back from veterans VIPs and other visitors so feel we have managed to mark this special 70th anniversary of D Day year in an appropriate way.

    If any of you are in the area do pop in – we’d love to see you

    Kind regards

  8. Dear Mike,
    Thank you so much for coming to join us at "Wartime Wallop". We really did appreciate all your clever efforts in producing a tremendous display.

    It was such a shame that the weather and its forecast was so beastly, otherwise I believe that we would have had far more people in attendance and would have been able to have the event outdoors which of course is what we originally envisaged - and you would have been able to produce the bangs!
    I do hope that you enjoyed the day and will be happy to be with us for future events.

    Kind regards,

Hope to be in touch and I hope to become involved, Thank You.

  18. Good Day 25th. Bomb Disposal. Co. Royal Engineers. L.H.G. and Friends,

    I came across your site, 25th. Bomb Disposal. Co. Royal Engineers. L.H.G., and noticed that we share a similar interest in the health and wellness of Veterans. I think that your site offers a wonderful source of information and relevant resources to your viewers. I believe I have a great addition to your collection of links. My name is Sarah Anderson, the Communications Director for Mesothelioma Resource Online. Approximately 30% of all patients in the US diagnosed with this lethal form of cancer served in the military at some point. However, our site, www.MesotheliomaSymptoms.com, is an excellent resource to learn about Asbestos in the military and the various treatment options for Mesothelioma.

    I saw that on your site, http://www.25thbombdisposalcorelhg.webeden.co.uk has some links to some other great veteran resources, and I would be grateful if you shared our site, MesotheliomaSymptoms.com. Ideally, this would be a single text link to Mesothelioma to help raise awareness.

  19. Hi Clifford, i will try and trace some details for you. also if you go to EOD site link on our link page they might have something there for you. Thank you for sharing details. it makes our group worthwhile in keeping their memories and the job they did alive for they are the unsung heroes of WW11 and present day. Many thanks again for visiting our site. Best Wishes. Mike

  20. Just sharing a thought or two following the death of my Dad, Ronald William Dunn.[30 November 2011]. He was a Lance Corporal with the 25th Bomb Disposal and had many tales to tell about his time in London during WW2, especially time spent in and around Eltham.
    In the autumn of 2010 a bomb was unearthed in Plymouth under what was the old NAAFI site.
    Someone sent him a photo from the newspaper and in spite of his being 92 and having a Macular problem he was able to identify it and describe how to deal with it.
    I would be interested in tracking down his War Service records. All I have is a trophy he won for Rifle Shooting-of which he was very proud.

  24. Hi
    I wonder if any one can help me?
    My grandfather Roland Robberts was in the Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal Unit and used to tell the story of a bomb found on a railway line that exploded while he was down the line telephoning HQ. All the men were killed and he lived with the memory of the horror of that sight for the rest of his life. He died in June this year.
    Is there any way I can find out if he was part of the tragedy at Hook?
    Thank you

  26. Hi Capt. Mike,
    We met at the opem Day at the Royal Engineers Museum in October. I was very impressed with your display and I invited your group to attend the "War on the Rails" event at The MizensR auilway, Knaphill, near Woking, Surrey on 26th. June 2011. It has taken me a while to get in touch as I didn't have your contact details. Are you still interested in attending? I can e-mail you more information and a site plan, etc. We would re-imburse the cost of fuel and of any pyrotechnics that you expended and open our site on saturday if you wanted to camp. We are raising money and awareness for the "Help for Heroes" charity. Keep up the good work, Roger Hutchins.

  28. Good Evening Mike

    Just a quick note to say a huge thanks for the work you completed with the children on Friday - they were still buzzing when I spoke to them this morning! You really helped to bring history to life and on behalf of all the children you worked with - thank you. I truly hope you will be willing to come back into school next year to work with the children again.

    With thanks

    Russell Taylor, Year 6 leader.

  29. Great website! I passed on the details to my sister as it is good to remember the work done by our dad who was in 6 and 19 BDU-RE. He passed away 15th July 2009, another link lost with that period of our history. Best wishes.
