24391791 Gunner Richard Amos James Furminger killed a month before his 20th birthday when an IRA landmine exploded in a culvert under the road near the border in Armagh. The team were returning to their base in Lurgan as part of an EOD team convoy travelling along the B115 Kilymaddy to Armagh when the explosion occurred.
