LESSON 10

The loudest scream in the world


Jill Drake: When we arrived there, before we got in the Dome, there was this screaming competition because it was near Halloween. It was the 22nd of October. And there was a lady screaming and I just said for a joke, 'I can do better than that' and they said, 'Go on Jill, have a go!'

So I went up there and I screamed and they said 'Goodness, you've broken the world record. Can you do it again?' So I did it again and I broke the world record again. And it was just unbelievable! Well, we just couldn't stop laughing!

It's 129 decibels and British Forces Radio told me it was louder than the Concorde jet engine.

None of them could believe it because I'm not a loud person normally. I'm quite a quiet person so, you know, they were quite shocked.

Yes they're very proud of me. Embarrassed but proud. I don't think any of us can believe it. It's just one of those things that happen out of the blue.
