21st July 1969. I was eleven years old.
For several days before the 21st my Grandad and I had been glued to the television screen in my grandparent’s house in Smethwick, West Midlands, England.
Whilst my Nan busied herself in the kitchen occasionally popping in to get an update on the event we were watching unfold.
