Private Robert Stott.
A promient member of the Young Unionists, he was shot dead by the IRA in the late afternoon as he approached his home in Fountain St. He was shot 10 times by gunmen just after he left work. His brother said he heard shots in quick succession and went to the door to find him lying face down on the pavement, bleeding heavily. Among the wreaths at his funeral was one inscribed 'From the mothers of the Creggan and Bogside'.
