At the minute i'm working part time as a porter in a hospital. I was strutting about doing my stuff, when i overheard a cleaner talking to a patient about when he used to play for Rangers (FC). I already knew he played for them a while ago but my curiosity took me into have a chat with the guy and find out a bit more. Hes pushing on a bit now. I went in and was chatting away to him, when he said he transfered to Rangers in 1934 and played with them until he was conscripted. When i heard he was conscripted my ears perked up and i immediately asked him what he was conscripted into. He informed me that he was taken under the wing of The Kings Own Scottish Borders. He then went on to say that he was evacuated from dunkirk and then went back to normandy on d-day via sword beach. He said by this time though, his unit was now a 'medical rehabilitation' unit and that he helped treat wounded on the beach after the invasion. I asked him if he was proud of what he had done and i kid you not, this was his responce: "i'd be more proud if i'd been getting paid the wages they get nowadays!... i got Â£8 a week!" I had a chuckle to myself over his responce. How this has completely changed the way I'll look at him, as before now he was simply another patient. I'll go back and speak to him tomorrow.
