Post #1






I have been told by a relative that my uncle was stationed in Maryhill barracks during part of the war and he used to sneak out to see my aunt. One night whilst making his way back to Maryhill a bus was bombed in Byres Road and my uncle saved the driver and conductor. An article was in the papers the next day looking for the unknown soldier but he couldn't come forward. Does anyone know where I can find this newspaper article?
