SCOTTISH FACTORY EXPLOSION
TWO MEN LOSE THEIR LIVES


Two men lost their lives in an explosion in a Scottish factory on Thursday night.

The following statement has been issued by management: -

“Imperial Chemical Industries Limited regret to announce that as a result of a small explosion which occurred in the detonator department one worker lost his life and another received injuries from which he has since died. There was no material damage to plant or property.

The names of the workers who lost their lives are WALTER MAXWELL, (43), married, and ARTHUR FINDLAY, (22), single.”

[A war-time news embargo has obviously been applied to the above article but subsequent family intimations in the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald and other sources confirm that Walter Maxwell, (43), husband of Janet Corbett, 16 Winton Street, Ardrossan, and David Findlay, (22), son of David Findlay, Burnbank Street, Stevenston, were the victims of this accident at Ardeer.]
