Reg Glasgow MBE
was born on 13th November 1913 in Seven Kings, near Ilford in Essex and
spent the early part of his life there. On leaving school, he worked in
Cannon Street in the City of London for the Grosvenor-Chater paper company.
He joined the London Rifle Brigade section of the Territorial Army and was
called up for service in World War II. Eventually he rose to the rank of
Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant responsible for supplying front-line
troops. He was involved in keeping the troops supplied following the D-Day
landings. On one occasion, when the officer in charge of his section was
killed, Reg assumed command and for this he was awarded the MBE, a rare
award for military personnel.
