Remembrance Sunday

PostedNovember 13, 2010

Cowdenbeath Football Club and its supporters will be represented at the Cowdenbeath Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday 14th November 2010.

Thoughts on the day will be with ex-Cowdenbeath full back George Jordan. George was a member of the side which won the 2nd Division Championship in 1939 before joining the Army in 1940. Private 2759374 George Jordan of the 7th Battalion, the Black Watch was killed on active service in North France on Saturday 8th July 1944. He is burried in the Ranville War Cemetery, Calvados. Ranville was the first French village liberated on D-Day. George was only 27 years of age.

George Jordan, and all those like you who have given their lives in the name of freedom and democracy, we remember and salute you.
