All military branches have their own Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians. There are three different badges know as “CRAB” awarded to the EOD members. These are Basic, Senior, and Master badges.

Each part of this badge has a meaning.
The Wreath Symbolic of the achievements gained minimizing accident potentials through the ingenuity and devotion to duty of its members. It is in memory of the EOD personnel who gave their lives while performing EOD duties.
