Remains of the booby-trapped car at the rear of his home in which Edward Clayton, 27 years, breadserver, Armagh, N Ireland, died on 6th March 1975. The explosion was believed to have been carried out by the Provisional IRA but almost certainly they got the wrong man as Clayton had no security force or para-military connections. The victim's brother would almost certainly have died in the explosion had he not gone back at the last minute to get a raincoat.
