Another little-known connection with Glasgow is that Walter Bergius served his engineering apprenticeship with Glasgow Engineers G & J Weir of Cathcart.

Are you aware of the non pc nature of ageism in this day and age, young man? :o As it happens I overhauled plenty of his petrol/paraffin and diesel products over the years, and it has to be said that the quality and reliability of Kelvin engines were first-class, the reason why they were in great demand by fishermen, for whom reliability was paramount.

NB Shoot that wee birdie ...... it tells fibs.
