Mick,

Mick McGowan frequents the Facebook site, I'll contact him on there and tell him he's needed on here.
Hope you and yours are well.

only just got in will, will try to get mick later. Had a further thought on ted, it might have been a minor blow up in the Benghazi cookhouse.

Mick

Met Mick McGowan at the reunion. The answer to your ? is in the cookhouse one of ovens stopped working and had to be relit instead of turning the supply off, they tried to lit it straight away. Oven with gas supply running for a period of time gets a supply of gas hanging about it, add lit match result large bang.
