Jock Wilson MM

I thought you might like to see this, Jock being a gunner.
This was in last night's Edinburgh Evening News.

Boabble - Old Jock looks good for 104 and he has obviously had his share of problems to land on the D Day Beaches to gain his M.M. - but even more heartbreaking - I should think is his long support of the Hibs - over the many years they have been up and down like the proverbial yo-yo enough to put years on anyone !

When we were in training at Barnard Castle - we had Bobby Combe of the Hibs in our hut but he was NOT on our draft for overseas somehow !

We had a great football team in those days with Jimmy Gordon of Middleborough at Right Half with Combe inside right and me on the wing. I was pleased to see Bobby made the Scottish team after the war !

Some phenomenal guy, our Jock. You didn't tend to win the Military medal without doing something special.
