Angus Hynd from Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Posted 12 Aug 2004.
Our school and street were heavily damaged during the Blitz (Centre Street school and Kingston St.) We were all evacuated and finished up in Waterside near Dalmellington in Ayrshire. As a six year old boy I found the blitz to be exciting, watching all the soldiers guarding our closes with fixed bayonets. We had a great time living in Waterside. I have too many memories to put them all in writing. On returning to Glasgow we were given a new house in Pollokshaws which was perfect.
