Chassis number 71569B - JGD426 was first registered on May 18th 1951 in Glasgow and is an Albion FT521 built by a local coachbuilder for the City of Glasgow Police, as a Black Mariah Prisoner Transport Vehicle. This vehicle has an infamous claim to fame, as it was used to transport PETER MANUAL, an American born notorious SCOTTISH SERIAL KILLER who was convicted of murdering a total of seven people across Lanarkshire between January 1956 and his arrest in January 1958. During the course of Police investigations Peter Manual was to anonymously send Christmas and Birthday cards to the Detective leading the inquiry "to keep him on his toes". As he went to the gallows Peter Manuals last words were alleged to be "turn up the radio and I will go quietly". He was the third to last person to be hanged in Scotland and was transported to the Gallows at Barlinnie Prison in JGD426 for execution by Prison Hangman Harry Allen on July 11th 1958. The story has recently been the subject of the three part ITV crime drama "IN PLAIN SIGHT". JGD426 has also appeared on film, featuring in the 2008 Scottish adventure comedy "STONE OF DESTINY" the fascinating true story of a real life Scottish Robin Hood. College student Ian Hamilton was a dedicated nationalist who deeply resented England's subjugation of Scotland. With the help of three fellow students in 1950 Hamilton managed to reignite Scottish national pride with a daring raid on the very heart of England.
