Title: Upper Clyde Shipbuilders - archiving records
Post by: Lynda Bradford on Jan 07, 2012, 06:00 PM
We owe a debt of gratitude to the Registrar of the National Register of Archives (Scotland) for saving the records of Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (UPS) for future generations.

Had swift action not been taken to negotiate the taking of these records into safekeeping then they would have been lost forever. 

There is a very interesting article on the University of Glasgow web site entitled "Death on the Clyde"  that details the rescuing of the UPS records.
