Olympic Bomb Disposal Pin??? info
This item set me thinking. It is not one of own items I just found it when searching a smaller auction site that I use as it is 100% Free to use.
A Bomb Disposal Pin issued at the Sydney Olympics of 2000. Who would receive this pin? How many would be issued?
In the UK Bomb Disposal is undertaken by the army. Is it the same in Australia and the United States?
I not imagine that at the Olympics there are hundreds of Bomb Disposal Experts on standby.
The only time I can recall seeing Bomb Disposalal is on TV when some old munitions were found on a farm and a second world war bomb was uncovered on a building site.
There was a great TV show on UK TV called 'Danger UXB' when I was a boy. Anyone else remember this?

During the Olympics the ADF assisted the local police by forming JTF112, Deployed on Op Gold. I was a member of JTF112, undertaking various searches of venues, vehicles and people. We also had EOD as a back up to us and I would assume these pins were issued to those guys. These pins would have been issued to all three services to anyone in a bomb disposal role. Would thik there would be too many of these pins around. If you want specific numbers I could look through a couple of things.

You can usually have them made for a fair price if you order in bulk.
