".............. the church on the corner of London Rd &
Brook Street had the 106th BB
and this is where I went to Sunday school,
shipmates, lifeboys and the BB. till it closed
down in 1967.
Then I went to St
Francis in the east church where I
joined the 228th
BB being captained by Neil Dunn
who as you said Webmaister was a top bloke I
was there till 1970 and it was one of the best
times in my life.
When I left
Dalmarnock school I went to Bernard Street
school........... I phoned my old man on
Sunday to get him to look out as many photos
as he can find, of the B.B. and my old schools
if they are any good I will scan them and
email them to you........

Found a copy of my
parents wedding certificate. They were married
in St Clemons Church in July 1934
Their names were
Sarah and David Dickson. So nice to see
some pictures of the old church
