Southern Diving Group
The Southern Diving Group (SDG) is one of two Area Diving Groups in the Fleet Diving Squadron.
Consisting of up to 60 Royal Navy Clearance Divers and supporting specialists, this Group is comprised of two Area Clearance Diving Unit’s. Southern Diving Unit One (SDU1) is located in Plymouth and SDU2 located in Portsmouth, both of whom collectively meet a broad range of standing commitments and at present, three key missions:
The first is a long standing commitment to provide Military Diving and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), or Bomb Disposal, Aid to the Civil Powers, such as the Home Office, Police and Coastguard, as well as counter IED support in the South Eastern and Southwestern sectors of the UK. Stretching 1400 miles, our area of responsibility begins from the Highwater mark in Hull and proceeds seaward to the Territorial limit and runs clockwise around the British Isles, including the Isle of Wight, Channel Islands, and Isles of Scilly, to finish in Liverpool. Many of these areas were subject to heavy bombing in WW2, and today we continue to be tasked with a large array and quantity of ordnance that would otherwise present a significant danger to the public and critical national infrastructure, both on the foreshore, at sea, and on occasion, inland.
