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.

Someone took a phot of a slogan next to an EOD operator in NI. This was then used as a timely reminder in poster format, in Felix building at the IEDD school. I believe as we are getting up close and personal with the device we can impart an element of luck. Unlike the victim of the correctly pointed out categories above. Unless one of the makers has fucked up in manufacturing (NI ones) there is little luck to be achieved in initiating a device.Go to the top of the class for your classifications though. Very. Impressive. You must be the one switched on Royal.....
