The Partick Thistle Fallen

Recommended Posts

As we approach Remembrance Day 2021, we pay our respects...

In 1914 and 1939, when the nation needed men and women to serve in the country’s armed forces, football players were among those who volunteered. Partick Thistle FC were one of the many clubs whose players and former players became soldiers, sailors and airmen, and not all of them came home. This is a record of those Jagsmen who paid the ultimate price serving their country. They are listed by war & alphabetical order, with a short introduction outlining their club career, and then information on their war service.

A truly great article, Thistle Archive. Immense sorrow and respect.

 

Not Thistle but community related https://www.firstworldwarglasgow.co.uk/index.aspx?articleid=11641

Excellent article and site.  Quite a sacrifice.  As I went to primary school in the 60s in that area, the map of the location was good to see. I recall Woodside Baths, and the steamie in the lane round the corner.  Many thanks.

Can only second what everybody else has said.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
