There but for the grace of God..........    Mom and dad, with me, a one year old in a pushchair, were going to attend the fete at Thames Board on that fateful day.  As they approached the entrance along the riverside path, dad saw a long line of waiting people and immediately announced, that he had already done enough queuing in this war so they turned around.  They were heading back into town to catch the Woolston bus when they heard the explosions and the buildings shook in Bridge St.  Thank God for his impatient genes.
