Dates of existence


Hugh Thomson was born in Saltcoats on 7th July 1895, to Agnes (née Kilpatrick) and Hugh Thomson, an architect. His father worked in Saltcoats and his company became "Thomson and Sons" in 1930 before his death in 1935. Thomson attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1913 to 1914 as a part time architectural apprentice. During the First World War, Thomson served as a Lance Corporal in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders battalion. It is possible that Thomson worked for his father's practice. The company worked on a war memorial in Stevenston in 1930. A Hugh Thomson died in 1973 in Saltcoats, aged 77, a possible match for our records. Thomson is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
