Can't believe it was 20 years ago I remember being in my shop and heard the news on the radio.
It was a couple of days later that I found out one the company sales reps I dealt with his wife was one of the teaching staff.
She did survive but never went back and he gave up his job to look after her.
Mary Blake, a supervisory assistant, was shot in the head and both legs but also managed to make her way to the store cupboard with several of the children in front of her.
Very sad indeed it seems like it was so recent too.
Lovely wee village now tarred with a horrible event.
With the consent of Bob Dylan, the musician Ted Christopher wrote a new verse for "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" in memory of the Dunblane school children and their teacher. The recording of the revised version of the song, which included brothers and sisters of the victims singing the chorus and Mark Knopfler on guitar, was released on 9 December 1996 in the UK, and reached number 1.

Jim,
I only ever heard of Dunblane when filming started for Monty Pythons Holy Grail movie in the 70s.
It always held happy memories for me before that awful morning. :cry:
