Ralph Risk as President in 1934

Like many others of his era, Ralph Risk's Queen's Park career was cut short by the First World War. Serving with the Gordon Highlanders, winning MC and Bar, he was also involved with the military in the Second World War, this time with the RAF as a Wing Commander in Scapa Flow.

In civilian life he worked as a lawyer with Maclay, Murray and Spens and was the President of the Law Society of Scotland. He was also awarded the CBE in 1959.
