Barracks background

FIRST of all, may I take this opportunity to thank you for such an informative web site of Helensburgh.

My parents are both from Helensburgh and I and my family lived on the Naval Estate at Churchill for 10 years when I was based at Faslane — I played rugby for Helensburgh first team for those 10 years, preferring to play for Helensburgh rather than the Naval Base team.

Dear Editor,

I have the privilege of being a direct descendant of Thomas Connelly who lived in Helensburgh from 1852 until his death in 1894 aged 76 years.
