Bomb Disposal is an all-encompassing term used to describe the worldwide professions of both military Explosive Ordnance Disposal and public safety Hazardous Devices Disposal. The Bomb Disposal Tartan was designed to represent, honor, and unite all Bomb Technicians and their families, past – present – future; without regard to military or public safety service, or the nationality of the Technician. The tartan may be worn or displayed by any person who is or has served as a certified Bomb Technician and their immediate family members (current spouse, parents, siblings, and children), as well as certain other approved associated persons.

The heraldry of the tartan is as follows:

  • Olive drab and flat black are both symbolic of military and public safety special operations and are the primary and secondary colors of the bomb suit. Flat black also symbolizes a mourning band, honoring all of our brothers and sisters who have laid their lives “upon the alter of freedom,” and acknowledges the pain and loss suffered by their colleagues, families, and friends.

  • The olive drab and flat black bands form the warp and weft of the commonly recognized checkered pattern of tartans known as the sett and are proportionate to their presence on the bomb suit.

  • Scarlet honors the bloodshed of all Bomb Technicians who have been either injured or killed and signifies that we are one family, regardless of our service or nationality. It is also the heraldic color of fortitude and victory.

  • Gold symbolizes honor and excellence and is reminiscent of the lightning bolts common to many Bomb Disposal insignias around the world.

  • Desert-tan represents the unprecedented I.E.D. challenges faced by Bomb Technicians in the Global War on Terrorism and beyond.

    The Bomb Disposal Tartan was designed and created by Bomb Technician Dale Green, with input from military and public safety Bomb Technicians and the invaluable assistance of Mr. Steve Ashton of Freedom Kits. It has been officially approved by and registered with the Government of Scotland – Scottish Register of Tartans and assigned registration #11225. Proceeds from its sale benefit the EOD Warrior Foundation, the Bomb Technician’s Memorial Foundation, and other charitable organizations supporting Bomb Technicians and their families.
