Ah its a 2 part one Boat pics are from a different year.
If you look really close in the newsreel I think you see me right at the front on the right outside the royal Garden Hotel when Bobbby moore lifted the trophy.
Funny gt uncle ted took me up after the match finished and said your always remember it young johnny. I was none to bothered at the time but the Old boy was right.

At 9.45pm on the night of 7th November 1974, a distressed and bloodstained woman burst into the bar of The Plumberís Arms, Lower Belgrave Street, crying out "Help me, help me, help me. Iíve just escaped from being murdered. Heís in the house. Heís murdered the Nanny!" She was the Countess of Lucan, who had fled from her home at number 46, leaving behind her three children. She was obviously the victim of a serious assault, and the police and an ambulance were called to the scene. The police officers who arrived to investigate found a substantial house with a ground floor, a basement and four upper floors. Forcing open the front door, they searched the premises, and found the children in their bedrooms, unharmed. The door to the basement was open. There was no light in the hall, so they fetched a flashlight. They descended the stairs to the breakfast room, and found the walls splashed with blood, a pool of blood on the floor, with some male footprints in it, and, near the door connecting the breakfast room to the kitchen, a bloodstained sack. The top of the sack was folded over but not fastened. Inside was the corpse of Sandra Rivett, the childrenís' nanny. She had been battered to death with a blunt instrument. In the hallway was a length of lead piping, covered in surgical tape, very bent out of shape and heavily bloodstained. The back door was unlocked.

When Lady Lucan was able to make a statement to the police she named her husband as her attacker and the murderer of Sandra Rivett. Of Lord Lucan, there was no sign.

hows that close enuff
