'Bridgeton Burns Club' medal from 1904 uncovered by GlescaPals!

 

After reading about Bridgeton Burns Club on this website one of my GlescaPals contacted me ..  ......"Wull, I have my Aunt Annie Fraser's  medal that she won in a singing competition at the Bridgeton Burn's Club in 1904 aged fourteen. 
She died in the influenza epidemic in 1914 whilst going steady with a fellow and making plans for their engagement party when she took ill. The man' s name was R.S.McColl of the newsstand fame!                                                                                                                  ( Ron Fraser, Ohio USA )

Extract from e-mail, Ron Fraser, Ohio, USA   
"Wull.......I thought the way you showed the pictures was just fabulous.  Then again what else could you expect from the GlescaPals Webmaister!  Another excellent job, but I wonder how  you get the time to work on everything that you do. 
Believe me, it is much appreciated."
