History of "The 44"

Key Dates & Info

 

The Company was founded in 1901 and was originally numbered the 1st Cardonald Company.

 

The first meeting place was at 'The Halfway'.

We then took the name of the "44th Glasgow" and moved to Cardonald Parish Church Halls.

 

Jubilee House was built by the then Captain of the Company, Dr J B Forsyth, to celebrate the Company's Jubilee year.

One Hundred Years of the 44th

 

An account of the history of the Company was published to celebrate 100 years of the 44th.  The book is available from all officers or by e-mailing your order and is priced at £7.50.
