Wihle we're on the subject of other peoples' near misses,
an ancestor of mine was in the trenches in war to end all wars.
Back home he'd been a boot maker.
Some toff officer decided he wanted a new pair of riding boots, so my great great grandfather was called back from the front lines. While he was off making shoes his entire unit was killed charging German machine guns.

The night he got home to Belfast after the war his house was burnt down by Orangemen, which was nice.
