Young Krackpot Torch.
Then later in life a Dennistoun Monk for a while before realising the futility of it all.

Every gang had their teritory , I stayed in Ruchazie from 1957 till 1968 . I was going out with a girl from carntyne ,so i had to cross the canal bridge into Cranhill to walk her home ,our gang would be at one end the cranhill mob at the other ,I was given a safe passage to take the g/f home ,and the same curtesy was given to anyone who had to walk a girl through Ruchazie ,but you were in deep shit if you tried it for any other reason.

That would have been the wooden bridge bp1. I lived near the bridge from 1967 and witnessed many fights here and also suffered a war wound during a stone fight once. It was usually just stones and large bits of wood that were the weapons of choice.

For some reason these fights didn't stop us from playing football down at the school annexe. By the time they finished the motorway and the new bridge I think this venue for a fight ceased to be used. Or maybe people just grew up and moved on. :wink:

BP1

The Ruchazie gang would start gathering at about 6.00pm in Bankend Street.

By the mid 70's my mum would be out with her watering hose to soak them as they ran by the house. I remember one night my dad got so tired of the continued fighting that he ran out with a garden shovel and shouted to the other neighbours to come out from behind their curtains and come and help him get rid of the gangs.

Not long after this the bridge was closed and a new temporary road built at the back of our house. there wasn't much bother after this.
