STAN Laurel’s Glasgow connections are well known.

The comedian spent part of his childhood in the city, where his father ran the Metropole Theatre.

Stan got his first job on stage at the Britannia Music Hall, or Panopticon, and he and his partner Oliver Hardy often performed here over the decades with their world-famous comedy double act.

However, one Times Past reader is keen to know if a ‘vague memory’ he has is rooted in fact.

Colin Doak got in touch after reading our article on Laurel and Hardy’s visit to Glasgow in June 1947.

“In it you mention that Stan Laurel attended Queen’s Park school,” he says.

“I’m sure my Mum, who recently passed away, also went to Queen’s Park and I have a vague memory of her saying that she was presented a sports day medal by Stan Laurel.

“I wondered if you had any information on this and whether he did actually make a presentation of prizes at the school?”

Can any readers help Colin?
