Memorial Wall

Sadly, over the year’s other personnel have lost their lives conducting and assisting with Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and search duties, both within the United Kingdom and across the globe. All are remembered by their respective units and every one of our fallen heroes’ forms part of a central Roll of Honour at the National Arboretum. This is a fitting tribute to all servicemen and women who have died in the service of their country.

Our memorial wall remembers those serving personnel from the United Kingdom’s EOD and Search community, above and below the high water mark, who have lost their lives on operational service, or in training for operational service. The start date of remembrance is 1st January 1947, the day after President Truman’s historic statement officially declaring the cessation of hostilities of World War II.

While every effort has been made to ensure all information here is correct we welcome corrections, amendments and additions to ensure we honour all elements of the charity’s remit.
