Re: Mori Has Passed Away :(

AzimScot, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I always read what he had to say and felt that he and I had something in common. He will be greatly missed on this forum. May Mori rest in peace.
Dugald.

Re: findin my family egan

Hello Donna, and welcome to Hidden Glasgow. Sorry to see you haven't had much luck yet with your search for family members. It might be worthwhile to post your request on SunnyGovan Message Forum . Most of the people there have strong Govan connections and might be able to help you. Good luck in you...

Re: WWII Stuff

I visited the web site you posted WSC, and I agree with your suggestion that " Above Top Secret " is a euphemism for " away with the fairies ."... just rubbish! Preposterous is how the author himself describes the British POW flying over to the UK for a pair of tin legs then volu...

Re: Glasgow's Cycling Heritage

I recall seeing pictures of a circus clown of normal stature riding a bike about the size of this one in your picture Dexter, and I often wondered where a bike of such minuscule dimensions could have been obtained... now I know!

Re: WWII Stuff

Yes WSC, a proverbial enigma wrapped in a mystery inside a conundrum, is an apt description of the Ju 88's flight to Scotland. I understand what you are saying about the `May has come' coded message to the Pilot's father in Germany, but even this could have been given to the father beforehand with t...

Re: WWII Stuff

Great post there WSC; I enjoyed reading it very much. It tells a lot of what happened with this defection, or desertion, or whatever. I don't see anything here which would lead us to believe the German pilot's defection was expected by the British. Professor R V Jones tells us that the Ju88 had been...

Re: WWII Stuff

WSC, I'd guess that at this stage of the war, any German aircraft that got anywhere near the British coast would have been intercepted by RAF fighters; and if the Ju indicated (wing wiggling) it wished to land in Britain, then I'm sure it would not have been attacked. I don't think being escorted to...

Re: WWII Stuff

I was interested in the story of the Ju88 that landed at Dyce Airport. Does anyone know what became of the crew? And, more pertinently, what incentive we offered to get them over? Fascinating Stuff. WSC, sorry for the delay in commenting on your post about the " Ju88 that landed at Dyce Airpor...

Re: What would you Ban.

I'd like to see the wearing of bicycle helmets mandatory, especially among young riders. The wearing of a helmet is no less a safety measure than wearing seat belts in a car. Does one drive one's car wearing a seat belt with more abandon than would be the case if one were driving the car without wea...

Re: This Girls got Talent.

Judging by the somewhat moderate comments on HG about this woman leads me to believe she hasn't excited Glaswegians to just the same extent as she appears to have to the people over here. Last night she was featured, and quite extensively, on all of the major national news broadcasts. Imagine, Obama...
