Does anyone remember my father, Alex Wilson? We stayed in Govanhill Street. My grandparent's name on my mother's side was Muir who also lived in Govanhill Street in the 1950's.

I'm very interested in the story of the 2nd Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders in the Malayan Campaign 1941-2 and co-authored the book MOON OVER MALAYA: A TALE OF ARGYLLS AND MARINES (Tempus Publishing 2002). Many of the jocks in this incredible battalion came from Glasgow. I wonder if some where from the Gorbals? Would love to hear from anyone with any knowledge on this. Please email me at JonathanMoffatt@aol.com

Can anyone remember Danny Gallagher? He went to St. Francis old primary school, which was behind the chapel. He had a brother called Boxer. The family left these shores for Ireland in the 70's. I often wonder what became of them. Danny was a top goalkeeper at school. Please email me at Paul.richmond@adsweu.com.

Can anyone give me any information on the following street names and my ancestors? My great great grandparents were George and Jane (Findlay) Caughie. They are believed to have come from the Stranraer area of Wigtonshire and settled in or around Logan Street following their marriage in 1858 in Kirkcolm (Wigtonshire), and had several children.

My great great grandmother Jane, died on the 21st April 1910, and I think was buried in the Southern Necropolis cemetery. I don't know for certain as yet, but I am trying to confirm whether this is her final resting place? One of their children was John (Jack) Caughie who married Katherine McNally on 8th January 1887 in St. Francis chapel, Cumberland Street. They moved to 64 McLean Street, Govan.

Also, are their any photos available of these streets and are the houses still standing? Please email me at acnw9@aol, if you have any info, no matter how trivial it seems. Thanks

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me find my grannies younger sister Sybil Russell. My granny, Patricia was born on Coburg Street in 1930. When her mother Isabella died in 1938, she was sent to live with her maternal grandmother in Co. Down, while Sybil remained in Glasgow with her father. The last contact they had was when Sybil was a nurse with the Queen Alexandra Nursing Corps at BMH Munster, Germany in the late 1950's / early 1960's.

Even if you don't have any up-to-date information, it would be great to hear from anyone who might remember my granny and her family. You can email me at janeymcleany@hotmail.com. With thanks and best wishes.

I just read a posting from a guy here in Canada of all places about RanCel! My granda and uncle started that team and my dad was the captain. He didn't leave an email address, so I'm hoping he'll come back to this page and read this. My granda was Davey McLean, my uncle was Billums Taylor and my dad is also David McLean, but known to most as Gilly. All from the Gorbals. Dad went to Camden Street and Adelphi school. Mum, Francis McTigue grew up on Lawmoor Street and went to St. Francis and Holyrood school.

Drop me a line if you remember any of these names at clattymanky@hotmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.
