  • Description

    A wave of subversive activity in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires has brought to the forefront a new body of men, whose job it is to help combat the outcrop of terrorism. They are the men of the Explosives Squad -- volunteers from the city police and fire brigade who are trained in the business of dealing with unexploded bombs.

    There are about a hundred men in the buenos Aires' squad -- all volunteer policemen and firemen. They get no special pay or extra benefits, but they are given specialist training in handling and dealing with explosives.

    Team work is the essence of their method. When a bomb alert is sounded in the city, they travel to the scene in one of four special vehicles. Wearing protective clothing and masks, it is the Explosives Squad's job to defuse any unexploded device, place it in an armoured canister and take it to a safe place and detonate it safely.

    Only volunteers are accepted for this dangerous work in the Explosives Squad, but there is already a waiting list of men eager to serve.
