I am sorry to report that Hugh Davidson passed away peacefully yesterday morning.
Hugh was 77, a regular attender to the reunions and will be missed not only by his son Alan and the family, but also by the “Boys of his era”.
He was Alex Ibell’s nephew (His mother Nan was Alex’ sister). He played the pipes and passed down the tradition to his Son and Grandson who also play.
(Sgt. Hugh Davidson can be seen in this photo front row 2nd from the left.)
Hugh a butcher to trade, took over his father’s family butchers business then passed on the reigns to his son Alan.
They built up the business with shops in Yoker, Scotstoun and a factory unit in Linwood. (This supplies their shops as well as many top Scottish Hotels and Restaurants. (They even supply our Caterer for the Annual Reunion)
Funeral details once received will be posted on the website.
I am sure all the Ex Members pass on their condolences to Alan and the family.
