    109th Bellgrove and Young Street Church.

    Sir William's grave is not far from George Gillespie's in the Western Necropolis. I found it when I was on some Founders' Trail searches. I don't have the photographs on this laptop. I'll post a couple later.

    I think the Glasgow Battalion headquarters are based at Ibrox Parish Church in Clifford Street. That was the former Bellahouston Parsih Church. Mr Wilton was a member there. Its congregation merged with those of Ibrox Church, where Mr Struth was a member, and Steven Memorial. For the real anoraks, the Sanctuary was designed by architect James Smith, father of the infamous Madeleine.

    You can download a membership form here - http://www.bbglasgow.org.uk/news/Ste...ip_Leaflet.pdf - membership costs just 10 a year.



    Anyone got picture of the old BB displays/meetings at Ibrox?



    Funnily enough its in my parish newsletter this month also! 44th Glasgow Loyal!

    I think there are Stedfast Associations in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen so you join whichever is nearest to you or your old company.

    The Federation of Stedfast Associations can sign you up to the most suitable if you write to them - http://www.stedfastfederation.org.uk/html/join.htm

    or here's a list of local groups - http://www.stedfastfederation.org.uk/html/members.htm

    1st Inverkeithing - just found out it's no longer going, folded in last few years.

    Won our battalion under 14 football league twice in a row, and reached finals of national five-a-side tournament, playing against teams from Glasgow, Birmingham and London in the Fife Centre, Glenrothes.

    Happy memories.
