Swastikas Scrawled on Shop Windows in Glasgow

Download PDF for this date

Immense swastikas were scrawled on Glasgow show-windows last night in what was taken to be an attempt at anti-Semitic incitement here. In one street alone 41 windows were daubed.

John McGovern, Independent Laborite M.P. for Shettleston, who saw some of the swastikas, described the action as “deplorable” and said he planned to mention it in Parliament this week. No anti-Semitic activity or interference with any religion or race is wanted in this country, McGovern asserted.
