Messes things up as the source of the data is the same :-)

The data is from the same source ie Paul Ysart, the majority of dates pertaining to the Ysart's working history came from the audio taped interview that Paul give to Alison Clarke in 1988 and by this time was 84 years old and I have got on good authority that Paul's memory had deteriorated by that time. It has now be proven that Paul got some of these dates and facts wrong, the main one being the date the Ysart's started at Moncrieff's, he give 1922 when in fact it was 1921.
Where as the interview with The John o Groats Journal in 1972, he clearly states he left Leith  Walk Public School in 1918 and that the Ysart's started at Moncrieff 1921,which corresponds with the Moncrieff Glassworks employee ledger.

I would go with the ledger and the John O'Groats interview. The ledger is not likely to be off by several years and the interview was earlier, when his memory was clearer. Combine that with the fact that we've got a best two out of three situation, and there you go.

Good work. :D

But keep the different accounts on record as neither can be proven conclusively. Although the 72 account sounds good. Never got a date on the Cochran closure (as I recall) so 22 was probably assumption.

At some point we need to add an annotation to the Clarke on line article. Will be doing the SG site upgrade very soon, after which I need others more heavily involved to take things forwards.
