Queen’s Park Secondary School



Queen's Park Secondary School as it looked during the early 1980s. The school was built by the Cathcart Parish School Board and was accommodated in four buildings the earliest of which opened in 1874. One of the four buildings was destroyed by fire in 1912, and the primary school pupils were transferred to a new school in Cuthbertson Street, 1907-1912. The secondary school closed in 1994 and was converted to a Teachers' Resource Centre.
The buildings were acquired in the late 1990s by the Victoria Infirmary, which has its outpatients' department on the opposite side of Grange Road, and the building on the right was demolished. The site was awaiting development in 2003. (Glasgow City Archives, Department of Education).

The memorials are housed in Langside Library, 2 Sinclair Drive, Glasgow G42 9QE

TRANSPORT COMMAND
Special transport flight from Egypt to England.
299 Squadron, RAF (Shepherds Grove, Suffolk - 38 Group)
Short Stirling IV LJ668 - took off from Egypt captained by Fg Off C T Dillon, RAF, bound for England, but diverted to Rennes, France, because of high fuel consumption. On entering the circuit difficulties were encountered with radio communication between aircraft and ground, whilst approach to the airfield was hampered by a 200-foot cloud base and inadequate airfield lighting. Although homed on to the correct runway and seen from the ground, the captain could not see the flare path when at 150 feet. He carried out an overshoot, called at 0028 to advise he had only 10 minutes fuel left and immediately crashed while turning to port, and burned out. The six crew, eight RAF, two Navy and 10 Army passengers died, three New Zealanders being amongst the latter. All 26 are buried at Rennes.
