Busdriver Sitting On Wall With His Young Son 1939

1939

About this memory

Harry Sime (senior) and Harry Sime (junior).

"Because he was a bus-driver and transport was considered to be essential work during the war, Harry Sime was not called up to fight at the front. However, because the Clydeside shipyards were prime targets for enemy bombers, Glasgow could be a dangerous place during the blitz and he often had to divert his bus along different routes to avoid streets that had been bombed. The little boy, Harry junior, grew up to be an officer in the RAF." - Evelyn Whitfield (née Sime, daughter and sister to the two Harrys)
