Corporal Thomas Agar and Lance Corporal Robert Huggins of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers


Remembering the Fallen: on this day in 1984, Corporal Thomas Agar and Lance Corporal Robert Huggins of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers died in Northern Ireland. They were killed in the explosion of a bomb which had been left under their car outside a leisure centre in Enniskillen, as they took part in the annual Sealink Classic angling competition on a nearby waterway.. Two other soldiers were seriously injured – one of them, Lance Corporal Peter Gallimore, died from his injuries the following October. Based at Ballykelly, they had been taking part in an angling competition on one of the nearby waterways. This link relates to the unveiling in 2016 of a plaque in their memory: http://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/murdered-soldiers-families-in-enniskillen-for-plaque-ceremony-1-7382104 Thomas (on the left), from Jarrow, was 35 years old and married with one child.
