Today is the 20th anniversary of the Deal bombing.
At 8.22am on September 22, 1989, members of the Staff Band of the Royal Marines School of Music were chatting in their recreation room in the North Barracks before assembling on the parade ground for rehearsal when a bomb went off.
Planted by members of the IRA, it killed 10 musicians. Almost a month after the explosion, another of the badly injured musicians died, bringing the toll to 11.
The victims were Musician Mick Ball, 24; Musician Andy Cleatheroe, 25; Band Corporal Trevor Davis, 39; Musician Richard Fice, 22; Musician Richard "Taff" Jones, 27; Band Corporal Dave "Mac" McMillan, 21; Musician Chris Nolan, 21; Band Corporal Dean Pavey, 31; Musician Mark Petch, 26; Musician Tim Reeves, 24; and Musician Bob Simmonds, 34.
No one has ever been brought to justice for the crime.
