French Sailors in Glasgow


From Our Own Correspondent


Thousands of Glasgow people lined the pavements around St. Andrew's Cathedral on Sunday to cheer some two hundred French bluejackets and their officers when they arrived to attend Mass.

The Frenchmen, the personnel of three cruisers at present visiting Glasgow, were led by Admiral Godefoy and M. Is Comte de Curzon, French Consul-General.

Mass was celebrated by Mgr. Daly, V.G., in the presence of Mgr. Mackintosh, Archbishop of Glasgow. The attendance included Lord Provost Dollen and a representation from Glasgow's magistracy and Corporation.

Escorted by members of the Apostleship of the Sea, officers and men of the cruisers on Sunday visited the famous grotto at Carlin, Lanarkshire, where they took part in the services.
