Browser back button issue after logout

I am using Struts 1.1(Dyna forms), Tomcat 5.0, JSTL.

lets say user is in some page and it comes through "userAction.do" (which i see in url bar)
then user logs out I am invalidating the session (let's it goes to logout.do)and then retrieves some info about the user (e.g. user id) and sending user to login page (welcome.do setting the userId as querystring).

So i see in url bar http://localhost:8080/myApp/welcome.do?userId=27

So far it's good.

Now if user hits browser back button, (since session is invalid) it takes user to error page and in url bar I see http://localhost:8080/myApp/userAction.do

I don't want to show error page to show. I want to take user back to login page.
How ever when I tried to debug, it does not go to any action and just takes user to error page.

Is there any way I can achieve this?
Any help appreciated.
