1950 ... While out playing on a field near his home in Windmill Road, Ken Savage found a grenade. Not knowing what it was he took it home as he thought it would look good as the nose of his model aeroplane that he was building.
While scraping it out with a screwdriver, there was a loud explosion. Their Mum found both her children injured in the sitting room of their home. Ken died in hospital from his injuries, he was 12 years old. His little Sister aged 9 had to have an operation for her injuries.
