    Wouldn't it be an astonishing coincidence if one of the Gruesome Twosome happened to be playing a "Glamour Friendly" in Glasgow on that day!" A cynic is what an idealist calls a realist!

    So my Aberdeen memory must have been a senior moment!

    Stevie Chalmers

    Sorry to learn of the death of Stevie Chalmers. Stevie, who I believe also played for another Glasgow team, featured for Thistle towards the end of his career but I seem to recollect (over to you for correction Mr Reid) him scoring a winner for us at Pittodrie. Condolences to his family, accompanied by an increasing sense of my own mortality!

  5. Jags fans of a certain vintage will remember when the back page of the club programme always featured a McCormick cartoon, often in praise (albeit of the faint variety) of the Jags and lampooning the gruesome twosome. I still have this one which followed a(nother) less than dynamic start to one season…..

    Thanks for positive feedback. Rest assured, it was a labour of love. More to follow, as soon as I can find the time. Friendly v Preston North End 1971 Matches at Muirton Park, Tynecastle, Somerset Park etc.

    Two hip replacements over the autumn/winter I believe A bit daunting for anyone of Robert's vintage. He is, I gather, stuck at home going stir crazy - especially on Saturdays - but, hopefully, will return to the fold after a late fitness test.

    I agree re the archive Sandy, and preferably one that is accessible and not just locked away somewhere in the bowels of Firhill. Robert, however, has a much more important project to concentrate on just now as he seeks to recover from two major operations!

    Updated intro to reflect new information from QXBoy. The ? after Dolomite is due to the Net suggesting that it didn't come into production until October 1972, so maybe it was a Triumph Herald........even less space!! The Director's Cut (inclusive of corrections) will be uploaded today.

    I thought twelve was the total, I knew not everyone went by air but couldn't remember the split. Apologies if that impression was given. Were you in the camper van shown in the film, or was it literally a car? I remember that we were also joined by a few exiled Scots.

    Jim Mullen was indeed there. As were, Donnie McDowell, Nobby Clark, Tommy (later Strathclyde Regional Councillor) Rae, Charlie Smith (of Falkirk High School fame - if that doesn't make any sense to you, ask a Jags fan in his/her 60's) and Alfie Stamp - a winger of such bizarre eccentricity that he made Denis McQuade look boringly predictable! And others too numerous to mention.

    Of course! Anyone interested can share and/or download.
  15. Some hardy/lucky supporters followed the Jags on a pre-season tour of Sweden in July 1972. This is a link to a digitised copy of the 8 mm silent film which I took - and then lost in the late seventies. It re-emerged earlier this year and the acetate film had suffered from both age and far from ideal storage conditions, but I've recovered it to the best of my limited cinematographic abilities. It is, however, a memento of what was then a big adventure for those of us who travelled (for that reason you need to suffer some touristy bits), but there are lots of shots of famous Jags, on and off the pitch and I hope it might be of some interest to fellow Jags! (NB The film is silent but an "appropriate" soundtrack has been added so make sure you have the volume up! I should also add that my camera had a curious fault, it only recorded when Thistle were attacking!)
