Swanie  -  Deano -  Jackie
1976 

Dean Ladds ( Deano ) sent me these photographs of him and two of his pals Swanie and Jackie Bonnar all from John St School. The teacher sent them out with a camera to takes some photographs, this one was taken at the Green near the old bowling green park, you can see Greenhead Street through the trees in the background. They were pointing at the graffiti and in particular the name 'Milker' as he was someone they knew ...I know him too and was surprised to see his name here!

..

Here the lads are sitting on a bench in the Dassie Park - 1976  - great haircuts lads!

Extract from E-mail April 2003, Bob Currie
Strathaven. Scotland (61-70)

"Three Currie Brothers who were educated at Sacred Heart School. The brothers lived at 65 Reid Street, Bridgeton. Note that John and Alex are wearing knickerbocker suits. 
James the eldest, seated centre, emigrated to Quebec, Canada and like many thousands of others in the British Dominion he answered the call and as a Private in the 13th Battalion Quebec Regiment (which formed part of the British Expeditionary Force) fought and died at the second battle of Ypres on 24th April 1915, when the Kaiser introduced the terror of poison gas on the Ypres Salient. 
James was then 25 years of age and only one of the many east-end lads who died at Ypres on the Western Front and whose names are inscribed among the 56,000 with no known grave"
