The force of the explosion also killed Mountbatten’s grandson - The Hon. Nicholas Knatchbull (aged 14yrs), Paul Maxwell (aged 15yrs), the Dowager Lady Brabourne, CI (aged 83yrs), but mercifully Mountbatten’s daughter Patricia and her husband John survived, despite sustaining severe injuries. The pointless and futile murder of 2 elderly people and 2 young teenagers achieved nothing, despite the IRA’s protestations. On the same day as Mountbatten was killed, the IRA ambushed and killed 18 British soldiers at Warrenpoint, Co. Down and 4 Army bandsmen were also killed in Brussels.
