|On This Day|
I am suitably chastened Sheila although in my own defence I thought I would have had more response with people putting on their own contributions. We have had a few but I saw it as a moribund thread - I’m sure you don’t need to look that up so I have let it slide. Anyway, since you have resuscitated it:-
On This day in 1928 was born one Shridath Surendranath ’Sonny’ Ramphal, Guyanese politician who became Secretary-General of the Commonwealth in 1975. (Will that do you kiddo?)
Also James Heriot in 1916 and Gore Vidal in 1925. 1938 Saw Eddie Cochran arrive preceded by Ray Lindwall in 1921.
In 1226 St Francis of Assisi, the Founder of the Franscican order of monks died.
In 1906 S.O.S bedcame the international distress call signal replacing the call sign CDQ - sometimes explained as ’Come Damn Quick’.
In 1941 the aerosol was patented by L. D. Goodhue and W. N. Sullivan - now we know who to blame for the ozone layer hole!!!!!!!.
