An accident, which happened on Monday 16th November 1925 at a Blantyre Colliery, owned by Wm. Baird and Sons, Ltd resulted in the death of David Walkinshaw of Hunthill Road and injuries to Alexander Lightbody of Halfway, Cambuslang.
Both men were engaged on repairing work when a sharp fall of stones completely buried them. Walkinshaw left behind a widow and children.
Do you know what became of the Walkinshaw family? Not a name I know in Blantyre now.
