Bill Harper (Hibs, Arsenal, Plymouth and Scotland)

Post by ScottishFA » Sun Jul 28, 2019 10:58 am

I wonder if anyone can resolve a little query about the goalkeeper Bill Harper, who won 11 Scotland caps in the 1920s.

His date of death is quoted in most sources as 12 April 1989 in Plymouth. However, according to the Probate calendar, he died in 25 April 1989.

There don't seem to be any obituaries on BNA which would settle this one way or the other - does anyone have a contemporary death notice, perhaps in a match programme?

I tried to find a note of his death in the Edinburgh Evening News microfilm archive but with no luck I am afraid.
