F.A.O. Irving Goldstein - In answer to your question, do I remember "Big Barbara Black"? I can honestly say no, remember very few females from Bogey as we were kept seperate except for a few classes. Rhoda Oddy was in my art class - don't think she is even in "Friends". I am trying to gather names from schools, Gorbals, Strathbungo and even the street where I grew up, 73 Thistle Street. When I have a list and your e'mail address, I'll send it. Had it all once before in my computer then it crashed. Anyway getting ready to visit Cuba again - it's like you lot visiting Spain or Italy, getting ready for the summer and the "old timers" fitbaw !!! Keep in touch, Irvine.

Joseph Hughes - George Cross 23rd March, 2011 is the 65th Anniversary of the death of Private Joseph Hughes, R.A.S.C. A Gorbals resident and only nineteen years old, Joseph Hughes was stationed at Lymun Barracks in Hong Kong where he was involved in clearing the aftermath of the war, including landmines. He was driving a 3 ton vehicle carrying ammunition and explosives into the magazine area at the Barracks. As the vehicle was entering the storage area, it started to smoulder and caught fire. Knowing full well that his truck could explode at any moment, Joseph did everything in his power to put out the fire, firstly by trying to remove the burning camouflage netting, then by using fire extinguishers. Unfortunately the truck blew up and two days later Joseph died of his injuries. Joseph was subsequently awarded the George Cross for gallantry and is remembered by those in his regiment and the Hong Kong holiday village which is now situated where Lymun barracks used to be. Here in Glasgow and the Gorbals in particular, few have heard of Joseph and his heroism. A plaque containing a replica of the George Cross medal awarded to Joseph Hughes, and a brief summary of his bravery (including photograph) is now hanging inside the entrance (to the right) of the St. Francis Centre, 405 Cumberland Street in the Gorbals area of Glasgow. It is fitting that this should be in the area where Joseph was born and will be a place that people can pay their respects to a brave young soldier who gave his life for so many others. This was made possible by the efforts to have him remembered by Joseph' cousin Irene Finn and with the help of Glasgow City Councillor James Mutter (HUTCHESONTOWN WARD 66) and Mr George Donnachie of the RASC/RCT Association. The following poem was written by Elsa Beattie in memory of a brave young soldier.

JOSEPH HUGHES - GEORGE CROSS - FOR A HERO WAS HE

Joseph Hughes gave his life for his Service Corps "Brothers" his the ultimate price to save so many others. Just a lad from the Gorbals how proud we should be of that brave young soldier for a hero was he. His fear and his pain we can only surmise how he must have suffered in his sacrifice. With esteem his name spoken as it always will be by his comrades-in-arms of the RASC. In death then young Joseph his actions rewarded for his gallantry a George Cross awarded. His body lies cold far away, in the earth but let's bring his soul home to the place of his birth. Each act of remembrance brings Joseph back home to the land of his fathers his spirit will come. So let's always remember with a thought, or a prayer Joseph Hughes from the Gorbals and his courage so rare. ©ELSA J BEATTIE

I am form the west of Ireland and I am trying to trace any family or friends of the the Gammell family who lived in Crown Street before and after WWII. Jack Gammell who had, I think, six daughters and one son who was called Jacky. The two oldest sisters went to America and Grace who married into the Kelly family, Betty married into the McFadden family, Margaret (RIP 1981) who married Martin Geraghty (RIP 1979) (these are my grandparents) and then moved back to County Mayo. Norah and Jacky were in the navy during WWII. Ive been told he was decorated for bravery. Does anyone know of this family? Please get in touch. I know they don't know we exist and sure they would love to know they have still family in Mayo. There's a chance that my mother may have cousins that are still alive that she has never met. My mother is 83. Please help if you can.

Hi. I was born in 1955 at 100 Naburn Street. I was known as Patsy Wilson and my mum was Patsy and was Dr Freedlanders receptionist. My dad was Danny and he was a brikie also born 100 Naburn Street. My brother was Danny and my big sister Anne. We moved to Pollok in 1964 and a few weeks later the close fell down. Does anyone remember my mum or dad or family? We used to play in the graveyard and Dixons Blazes. I trained at the Vicky, joined the navy and came to Plymouth, but you can take the girl out of the Gorbals but not the Gorbals out of the girl.

The pub at the corner opposite Shawfield was the Wee Mill Bar near Jennie's Burn. Later it was owned by Joe McBride the Celtic player. When we were young we used to wait there on the dogs night and beg the lucky punters for coppers and always did well. If you thought your grandweans did something like that now, you would kill them. We also did 'polis watch' at the tossing school up the road from it in Molls Myre, and always got a bung there as well. I might be wrong but the Office pub might now be known as the Kiloran Bar. It is right under the old railway bridge.

That's why I mentioned Holycross and the other couple of schools in that area. I knew children went to "Bonnies" or other schools so I apologise but I do have a lot of SENIOR moments so once again SORRY for the mix up. Don't want the site to be going back to the way it was with everyone argie bargeing.

Hi Derek. I lived in Salisbury Street - born 1939 so you probably won't remember me. I think you lived across the road from me. I lived at no 33 top flat facing the street. I think up your close were the Friels and the McAndrews, and the Scotlands and the Sullivans lived up the next close to you. Ann McAndrew was my cousin and my pal. I went to Abbotsford and Strathbungo schools. Amelia Welsh who writes a lot on this forum comes from Salisbury too so you will probably remember her. Great memories. Cathie x

The money was put into a glass or metal tube and would go zooming off - it was brilliant. McPherson's Stores was between Lawmoor Street and Mathieson Street but nearer Lawmoor Street. It always smelled of disinfectant and paraffin. Do you not think that smells bring back memories more vividly than anything else? Cheers.

As a young plasterer, I worked on the ill-fated E-blocks in Crown Street. I remember looking on in envy at these huge developments and their enclosed walkways and smart apartments. I said to myself, one day I will walk past these blocks in the future and say : Hey! I helped construct these! Sad to say, my dream never came true. The last time I walked through the Gorbals they were finally being demolished. I'm nearly 60 now, I was born in Bedford Street before I married and moved to Ayrshire in 1976. I've lost touch with the Gorbals, but keep in touch via the excellent photographs from Urbanglasgow.com website.

I kept in touch with the lads for a while as we used to go to Annette Street Primary School in Govanhill for an occasional kick about - Billy Masterton, Ziggy and Buckie, James Gault - they were all good footballers but the most amazing was Hallsay. He was only a little guy - same height as me but what a player!! His name was Jimmy Hall. I never heard what happened to him, my he was gifted at football. I remember the name now - Bobby Watt. Your friend was in a punch up after school with a chubby dark haired guy - his name sounded Italian like Golloni, but John Smith broke it up. Mr Percy at your school - well he lived quite near me - small man receeding dark hair - always busy and a ladies man. Did your remember big Barbara Black?

Re : recent threads about schools. I grew up in the Gorbals late 50's and remember a school in nearly every street! 3 in Oatlands : Alice Street, Wolseley Street, Kilbride Street. Then in Gorbals : Oatlands School, Adelphi, Mathieson Street, Camden Street, Abbotsford, St. Johns, St. Lukes, and Hutchesons' Grammar. I bet I've missed a school out!!??
