For most people my age this is going to be the first such occasion of “where were you” – been just too young for say John Lennon or Elvis.

Carrying out a management role on that day, it was a bit of the unknown – should we turn the store music off, how would we know what to do, how would news get to us(this was still before emails etc!).
