In NZ history on this day in 1923 was the Main Trunk Line express train disaster. The Auckland−Wellington express ploughed into a huge slip that had slumped across the tracks at Ōngarue, north of Taumarunui in the King Country.

In world history on this day in 1535 Sir Thomas More was beheaded in England for refusing to swear allegiance to King Henry VIII as head of the Church. In 1885 Louis Pasteur gave the first successful anti-rabies inoculation.

Today is the birthday of rock 'n' roll musician Bill Haley. Born in 1927 he once said "See you later, alligator. After a while, crocodile."
