In January 1943 the Club was pleased to learn that their former clever and young player, Ian Campbell, had received his wings and was now a Pilot Officer. Ian had played with the Shipyard at the age of 16, having also had trials for Heart of Midlothian. During his career as Flight Officer, Ian continued to play and had the honour of captaining a Scottish forces side against the English in Cairo. At the end of the war, Ian signed for the Chicago Maroons who played in the North American Soccer League.
