    Personally, I don't actually remember anything about it

    I remember it very clearly. I remember my other half coming in and telling me the news he'd just heard on the radio. Probably the news had broke before then, but it was approx about 10:am when we first heard it. I remember the shock of hearing that he'd been killed. We were a bit stunned by it and didn't know what to think - like when the news first broke about Diana - no one knew what to think at first.

    On a Harrison Line bulk carrier a day from arriving in Adelaide. Lots of scousers on board - many of them in tears.

    In bed,after a night shift! When my clock/radio went off,I drowsily wondered why they seemed to be playing Beatles/J.Lennon songs,continuously,......then the news came on! A big J.L. fan,but I'm a bit sick of the way he's being paraded round,the last few years,often by people who have no apparent connection to him,in anyway!! The way it goes,I suppose. R.I.P. Johnny!

    Not a terribly memorable occasion for me, just watching it at home on the TV news... but I suspect that was because I was in denial, quite numbed at first... and had to watch several further reports before it really sank in...

    Incidentally, there's a Candlelit Vigil tomorrow night from 8 pm to 9.30 pm at Chavasse Park by the new Peace Sculpture.
