Aldershot OIRA Bombings Remembered

Posted on February 25, 2019

Respects have been paid to those who lost their lives 47 years ago when the Official Irish Republican Army (Official IRA) bombed the 16th Parachute Brigade officers’ mess killing seven people and injuring 19.

Family, friends, the local community and military personnel came together for a short service, where wreaths were laid on the memorial stone at Montgomery Lines in Aldershot.

The bombing was the first attack on mainland Britain during the Northern Ireland troubles.

And despite the passage of time, for many, the memories are still raw.
