A toast on a sad anniversary

image Please join me tonight in raising a toast in memory the 50th anniversary of Britain’s worst peacetime fire disaster, the Cheapside Street blaze.

Why is that here on Smokes and Booze?  Because 19 men were killed when a city centre whisky warehouse exploded.

It really drives home that those men and women who protect our daily interests are heroes, and they deserve our respect.

So, to all those firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice…thank you, and Cheers.

  1. Sad, sad day. Such a loss of life. Such a loss of whiskey.
