n incident in 1997

1) I recalled an incident in 1997.

Can we tell if the incident took place in 1997 or if it was 1997 when I recalled that incident?

Gratefully,
Navi

But if you said. "It was in 1997 that I recalled an incident". Or "I recalled an incident that happened in 1997", we would know what you were on about.
