Here's the interview: http://www.bbc.co.uk...ouse_12_06_2011
Excerpt from: News Archive 29
A while back you expressed an interest in the book I was researching on Army bomb disposal in Malta in World War II. I'm pleased to let you know that the book is about to be published by the History Press. 'UXB Malta' is currently available to pre-order from Amazon.co.uk.
If you'd like to know more about the background to the book, please visit my blog on http://uxbmalta.blogspot.com.
Thanks for your interest. I'd be glad to know what you think of the book.
I sent Susan this reply:
Thank you for this. I hope my contacts proved useful.
I have pre-ordered a copy of ‘UXB Malta’ and will publicise it on our Association’s website after its launch. Good luck with your sales.
Having noted an entry by ‘bdmalta’ on the Hard EOD Café website forum, I assume this is you and that Lt George Carroll RE was your father. You must be very proud. Incidentally, I hope you have read Frederick Galea’s fascinating book ‘Mines Over Malta’ about the wartime bomb & mine disposal work of Cdr Edward Woolley GM* RNVR.
Susan sent this in response:
Thanks for your kind words and well spotted: G D Carroll is indeed my father. I started out wanting to find out more about his WW2 service and found there was a whole story to tell about BD Malta. I appreciate you circulating details of the book to other interested parties.
I am also writing to invite you to be a guest at the launch of ‘UXB Malta’. The event will be an informal reception at the Royal Engineers Museum in Gillingham at 1130 hrs on Tuesday 11 May - the 70th anniversary of the formation of RE Bomb Disposal. Please let me know if you're able to come.
With best wishes,
Another Note - RIP Warrant Officer Gary O'Donnell (salute!!), KIA Sept. 2010, Afghanistan
