On Saturday the 7th February our RWM Bro Gary Sweeten and a number of brethren accepted an invitation from councillor James Coleman to attend the unveiling of a plaque in memory of Bro William Reid VC. The ceremony took place in Baillieston Library and was conducted by the Lord Provost of Glasgow, Bob Winter.
The event was very well supported by the community of Baillieston. Pupils from two local schools, Swinton Primary and Bannerman High, delivered presentations of the life of Bro Reid. We took the opportunity to display the memorabilia of Bill’s that we have in the Lodge for the community to enjoy.
Lodge Robert Burns and Baillieston can be proud to count Bro William Reid VC as one of their own.
