Miraculously the bomb failed to inflict loss of life, despite a bus full of children passing by as it exploded. Several elderly residents were treated for shock and two policemen and a soldier were injured. One of the factory workers described the attackers as "Satan's agents".
Pte Chambers' wife worked in the same factory as a packer, but was at home at the time of her husband's murder. She told reporters she was "absolutely shattered" and that the following day was to be their 13th wedding anniversary. They had two children together. The 34-year-old had been a member of the UDR for seven years and served in the 11th Battalion.
Two Lurgan men were later sentenced for life for the murder.
