Thread Name: BS: Where were you when.......
Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
I was in a school secretary's office with four other guys waiting to be interviewed for a teaching job in Penkridge when the news came on the radio that Gary Gilmore had been shot, executed or what you will....

I think it was obvious to everybody that when that happened the capital punishment industry was soon going to be back in business in a big way.

I was at home in tamworth when the Birmigham bomb went off. Some idiot a few doors along the street had been keeping petrol in his garage and the lot went up five minutes after the announcement on the TV about the Talk of the Town. the blast completely rocked our house.

for about half an hour after we thought maybe the whole of the midlands was under attack.

all the best
