Memorial Pantry, Craig Jeffrey, 20, 2nd November 1991, Royal Corp of Transport, 24898459, Driver, ST. WOOLOS CEMETERY, Newport, Block 89. FC/D38.

From Soldier magazine:
At the height of the IRA troubles in Northern Ireland (NI) the RAMC unit was bombed by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (PIRA) on the 2 November 1991 at approximately 2:35pm. The unit was busier than normal because some off duty staff were watching the Rugby World Cup Final. These included medical, nursing and administration staff. There were thirteen patients in the wing.

The bomb killed one member of the RAMC (WO2 Philip Arthur Cross) and one member of the RCT (Driver Craig Pantry) and injured 9 members of the Army Medical Services (AMS), a five year old girl and a four month old baby. The bomb contained 20 lb of Semtex which exploded in a service tunnel which connected the Withers block to the RAMC Ward. The Withers block housed the children’s ward and the orthopaedic ward.
