During the war
My grandfather got shot. In the neck.

I think he was paralysed for a while, I can't remember much of the story and he's not around to ask anymore (and neither's Dad). I did interview him on tape for a school exercise but don't know if I've still got it. He never regained full feeling on one side following the shooting, though.

Had the bullet been a fraction of an inch to the side, that'd be my dad, two uncles, sister, three cousins and me, all out of the picture.
