Army bomb expert not to be forgotten

The campaigning widow of Army bomb disposal expert Olaf Schmid has won an award for championing better gear for soldiers.

Christina Schmid got a top gong at the Communicator of the Year Awards. She said, “It really mean something to me, that I seem to be getting the message across”.

Her husband was post-humously awarded the George Cross after he made safe 70 devices before his death in 2009.
