Just after 6pm on this day in 1999 a bomb was planted, and exploded, in the Admiral Duncan pub, Old Compton Street, London.
I was in that pub, with Tony, and our dear friend Kath.
24 years later I am still affected when this day comes round. Just a few days ago there was an ad for this year's memorial service on FB. I immediately went into shock again. The memories of that night are painful and horrific..I'm sure tonight my dreams will be bad ones again.
I just can'tunderstand how anyone can hate another group of people whose lives have no effect on them, and especially not to the extent of murder.
