Fortunately the device in question was a replica!


Hallett Silbermann were pleased to be asked to provide a vehicle for the annual Lord Mayor’s Show in the City of London recently. A Mercedes articulated unit with low loader trailer was decorated by 101 Regiment (City of London) Royal Engineers (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Volunteers.

The tradition of the Lord Mayor’s Show stretches back some 800 years and includes a procession of bands and floats stretching almost 3 miles, which winds its way through the City of London.

The event concluded with any impressive firework display over the City launched from a barge moored on the River Thames.
