October 3, 2019

 

Remembering the Fallen:  on this day in 1973, Second Lieutenant Lindsay William Hamilton Dobbie, The Royal Army Ordnance Corps, on attachment with the Royal Anglian Regiment, was killed in Northern Ireland.

He was at the army post at Bligh’s Lane in Londonderry;  a small package had been delivered by hand, and exploded when he attempted to open it.  Second Lieutenant Dobbie was killed and a fellow officer received serious injuries including the loss of a hand.  A security review was immediately ordered, and the Royal Ulster Constabulary had already issued warnings about IRA letter bombs.

Lindsay, born in Kelso, Scotland, was 23 years old and married.
