    TheBoldAge looks at a few events in past times

    On this day .....Did you know that in 1975 The Sex Pistols, gave their first public concert at London's St Martin's College of Art. College. It lasted a short 10 minutes before college authorities 'pulled the plug'In 2011 Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated 25 years as manager of Manchester United, he was the longest serving manager in their history as well as in the English League football. Hats off to this: In 1942, The Church of England dispensed with its rule that women had to wear hats in church Red Rum, who became the greatest ever steeplechaser, and three time Grand Natonal winner, won his first race at Doncaster racecourse. If you put a bet on him, the odds were 100/7. I wonder what the odds would have been if you had said then he would go on to win the Grand National as many times as he did. How many of us remember, my favourte TV reality star Fred Dibnah MBE, who died on this day, aged 66. He was a steeplejack, avid historian, influencer, steam engine enthusiast as well as a television presenter and personality. His coffin was carried on his restored traction engine, driven by his son.
