POW Tribute in Clyde Tragedy

The Scotsman 19 September 1947

German prisoners of war and members of the British staff of Stuckenduff Camp, near Helensburgh, have sent a wreath to Provost Minihan, Port Glasgow, as a tribute to the 20 people who were drowned in Sunday night’s motor boat disaster at the entrance to the Gareloch.

Two Greenock cinemas are to give Sunday shows in aid of the distress fund, which now totals £629. Thirteen bodies are still missing.
