As the IRA used to tell us EOD types. You have to be lucky every time, we have to be lucky once!
I remember Using that saying and hearing it said of any VO/CW/RC/UV IED or "Boobytrap". Untill now I always thought it a generalisation as we always used "We" and "they". Every days a School day.

Impressive. You must be the one switched on Royal.....
