Hi DerekMorning Ian, I was at GCNS the year before you so our paths may have crossed when you were in your first year.
Not in 1971... or through 1973 as cadet.Going for a drink at lunchtime from GCNS was very much forbidden for Cadets, Davie Duff and Sandy Smith would walk around the local hostelries and woe betide if the found any miscreants. Drinking at lunchtime made the first lecture in the afternoon very difficult to not fall asleep in.
Correct - Cockburn, thanks, I was only there once at a birthday bash, ended up down around Blythswood Square.The pub round the corner was the "Cockburn" never greatly impressed, we used to go a short walk down to Sauchiehall street and down to the basement to a place called the Blenheim (not sure about the spellcheckers opinion) Spent a small fortune in there, after closing time it was off to find food, always a disappointment !
Of course for entertainment there was always the girls around Blythswood Square!!!!!
The "dirty wee port " John ?.Correct - Cockburn, thanks, I was only there once at a birthday bash, ended up down around Blythswood Square.
I once went to a place in Sauchiehall St with psycadelic paint on the outside, got talking to a local who flogged me a ticket to a Stones concert at the Apollo for £20 (Sept '73) Went in to college on the Monday and compared my ticket with a classmates ticket bought from the box office - no comparison!!!
I was from the sticks but learning fast (MAD)(Jester)
Morning Ian, I stayed in the YMCA, Bothwell Street for three years. As I worked for Ben Line I did the reversed phasing.Hi Derek, your name has a certain familiarity to it, were you Engine?
A number of us boarded at the Hostel in Bath street, fun and games there at times.
