40th anniversary of IRA Hyde Park and Regent's Park Bombings
At just after 40 minutes past 10 on the morning of 20th July 1982, the IRA bombed the Queen's Life Guard as they rode through Hyde Park to take up their duties in Whitehall. Two hours later a second device detonated in Regent's Park where the Band of the Royal Green Jackets were performing a concert. These acts of terrorism took place in London, but they shocked the world.
