August 2004, Extract from email, John Paton, Australia,
".............. the church on the corner of London Rd & Brook Street the
106th BB this is where I went to Sunday school, shipmates, lifeboys and
the BB. till it closed down in 1967.
Then I went to
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........
