The first time I heard it the place was evacuated so was one of the first out, the second time it was stood down.
it used to ve an IRA bomb Code as well.
They would ring up and say something like “Bobby Sands is in ex building”

i never realized that this was a universal code. Back in the late 70s and early 80s, I used to work at a football stadium on match days and was aware of what a tannoy message for Mr. Sands to contact the match day manager meant.
