I spent a most enjoyable evening last night in the company of the members of the Glasgow section of the Great War Forum. We met in the Oran Mor in Byres Road and we had a total attendance of 910 people in attendance which was four more than our last meet 5 weeks ago in Glasgow. Included in our members were young Karen from the Elephant & Castle in London plus her mother Maureen...their family lost five brothers in the Great War.
A most enjoyable evening and I am looking forward to our next meet in Edinburgh in early August. ;D

I was at a concert yesterday here in Guelph and the singer was John McDermott, his family immigrated to Canada in the 60's the largest family to immigrate 12 weans and from Glesga as well. He sings mostly to "THe aulder Section". He told a wee story about a Frances Tolliver, a liverpool man and the wee story was about "no Man's Land" in the great war. I imagine you are aware of the song? Was gonny post it but don't know where.
