Unseen enemy - Improvised Explosive Devices and their impact

  • Dec 1, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

An exhibition at the National Army museum telling the story of Improvised Explosive Devices and their impact, focusing on the British Army’s experience in Afghanistan.

You will be able to hear from the teams of specialists who work together to deal with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs): the Search teams who check for devices and confirm their presence; the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams who render them safe; and the Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) operators and ground troops who provide security. You can also listen to medical and rehabilitation staff providing insights into their vital roles in dealing with the impact of IED attacks.

This is an exhibition hosted in the National Army museum. While you can expect detailed information about IEDs and their impact, you can't expect any criticism of the deployment of British troops to Afghanistan or Iraq.

Entry to the exhibition is free. More infos about the exhibition can be found here: http://www.nam.ac.uk/microsites/unseen-enemy/

If you want, we can head to a pub afterwards

    Henning, Many thanks. Unusually informative Sunday afternoon. Fascinated to chat with fellow Members afterwards to hear different perspectives. None of this would have been possible without you! So a big thank you!

    Henning thank you for a most mind stimulating Sunday afternoon I have had in a while. The exhibition is informative, frustrating, humbling, sickening, sad and life affirming in equal measure. Chatting with the Club members about world conflicts afterwards was very interesting as we seem to have a variety of experiences of terrorism.
