I took some time to decide where to post these, as strictly speaking Bishopbriggs is in East Dunbartonshire. However, "Stirling and Central Scotland" didn't seem to be the right place, so Glasgow it is. It's practically Glasgow anyway. If no-one agrees with me, then I'll move it.

Sorry I've moved it. As you say it is East Dunbartonshire and I'm working on the Central Scotland list just now. If we have it listed as East Dunbartonshire but posted in Glasgow it will lead to confusion.

Regards

WW2
David McN. Brown

(Glasgow Herald 11th September 1945)
"Brown-
Previously reported missing, now presumed to have lost his life on 2nd October, 1942, following the sinking of the Japanese Vessel Lisbon Maru, A.B. David McNeilage, R.N. aged 26 years, deeply loved younger son of the late Mr George Brown, Admiralty, Torrance, and of Mrs Margaret Brown, 3 Springfield Crescent, Bishopbriggs.
"

Browns middle name is given as McNeilage in the obituary but McNeilace in CWGC & SNWM.

The 'Lisbon Maru' was carrying 1816 British POW's from captured Hong Kong to Japan. After the ship was torpedoed by the American submarine USS Grouper it sank slowly. When the prisoners broke out of the sealed holds upon realisation they were to go down with the ship they were shot at by the Japanese on other ships when on deck and in the water. Later the survivors were picked up by other vessels or made it by swimming to an island and returned to captivity. 970 remained alive.

Derek - from Google streetview looks like it is still at the junction of Kenmure Rd and Kirkintilloch Rd, opposite the train station - but haven't the surroundings "improved" a lot. Er. NO.

Just for researching information - during WW1 Bishopbriggs came within the Western District of Cadder in the County of Lanark.

Thanks Ken. We took the decision early on to go with modern boundaries. Places like this and Kilsyth in area around the north of Glasgow have moved between different counties/ regions/ authorities over the years so it isn't always easy to know where they were.

Thanks
