Sports

"One final thought.  Daniel Stewart's College placed emphasis on sports at Inverleith and elsewhere.

My moment of glory arrived when the Relay Race (Under 12) was run in 1945.  I belonged to the Drumsheugh House and won this medal:

Combined Cadet Force

"I was watching a BBC movie on iPlayer today and was reminded of something we learned while in the Combined Cadet Force at Daniel Stewart's College.

One of the elderly masters (Mr Davie Grant) produced some photographic prints -  World War I views from above, which were projected onto a screen. They showed the German barbed wire entanglements.  These showed up as shadows on the photos."

Bill Rushbrook

"My brother, William Joseph Rushbrook (Bill), attended Daniel Stewarts from 1932 to 1945, getting a book prize for English when he graduated in 1945.

Bill attended Edinburgh University, served in the Home Guard and later did National Service. He worked for the Ordnance Survey, living in Wigan Lancs, and was based in Lancs, until he retired in 1987.  Bill died in Wigan in 1996.

Bill's friends at school were:

Podge Ross, who died in a motor bike crash

Angus McLeod (Gussie)

Donald Wellwod, engineer.
  He married Betty Potter and emigrated to New Zealand."
