On Wednesday April 29 1942 Robert Clark was presented with a hall clock from the people of Maybole in recognition of the honour he had brought to the town in gaining the award of the Distinguished Service Medal.

Provost McCulloch made the presentation and said he felt it was a very great honour to make the presentation as it was the first distinction to be won by a Maybole man in this war (World War 2).

Seaman Clark, educated at Carrick academy, had been in the Navy for about six years since he was 16. The award had been given for gallantry in action against enemy aircraft in the Mediterranean whilst convoying food and munitions to Malta, and also for special service, details of which could not be mentioned. He had also taken part in the raid on Vaagso in Norway with great credit.

The photograph on the left is believed to be of the donation of a vehicle to the Red Cross in 1943 by the people of Maybole.

Maybole, August, 1897.

My Dear Friends,
I have much pleasure in presenting you this month with a memento of our Procession through the town on the 22nd of June ( the grandest ever seen in Maybole), in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee of our Queen's reign. The procession was well arranged and proved a great success in every way, the children unanimously taking chief honours.

Rev. R. L. Lawson
