Welcome Home 2012

Saffron Walden town square was bursting with pride on Friday as the community came together to welcome home around 300 soldiers from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Search Task Force.

The homecoming parade was part of a full day of events that began with a private memorial service at Carver Barracks, Wimbish; the home of 33 Engineer Regiment (EOD) to remember three members of the Task Force that paid the ultimate sacrifice: Sapper Connor Ray from 49 Squadron (EOD), 33 Engineer Regiment (EOD) and Corporal Andrew Roberts and Private Ratu Silibaravi, both of 23 Pioneer Regiment (RLC). Also remembered were those soldiers who had suffered life changing injuries on this tour and previous tours.

The Task Force consisted of about 400 service personnel from across the Army, Navy and Air Force. It was based around 33 Engineer Regiment (EOD), with 28 contributing Units from across the UK and Germany and involved 20 different cap badges.
