Name: Clyne, David Johnston Robertson
 

DoB: 01/07/1916, Dennistoun

DoD: 12/05/1944, Vatersay

David Clyne was born in Dennistoun in 1916 and attended Whitehill Secondary School. His official playing record is undeservedly brief, just eleven matches, as like many others of his age the majority of his appearances came in the unofficial Southern League, set up at the onset of World War Two. 

With 78 appearances in total, David also gained two Scotland Amateur caps, but his service as a Flight Sergeant in the RAF Volunteer Reserve saw him die as a result of injuries sustained in an air crash in an Catalina plane on the side of Heishavel Beag on Vatersday in the Outer Hebrides, along with two of his comrades, while six of his co-passengers survived. The night training mission, which had set out from Oban and was fully loaded with depth charges, was believed to have been caused by a faulty compass, and the frame of the crashed plane can still be seen today, lying between the road and the sea, where there is also a memorial to the crash. David is buried in Riddrie Park Cemetery in Glasgow.
