Once again, thank you. At least I now know where in Glasgow my father worked :).

The different offices appear to have had different purposes - do you know your fathers role in the Revenue ?
George street is listed as a Collection Office while the others in the 41/42 listing appear to be administration. Mitchell Street is cited as the Head Office while Wellington Street and Sauchiehall Street are linked with Dunbartonshire and Rutherglen.

Many of these office blocks are still standing and can be seen in Googles Street View

The principal officers appear to be listed for each address but there is no overall employee list for any of the addresses (which wasn't really the role of the Directory) and given that unless you made it to the top in the Civil Service you were basically anonymous, especially to the hierarchy

Do you know whether there would be a Glasgow Post Office Directory for 1943/1946 
 which might list the names of of people in the Inland Revenue Office.

The 1941/42 Directory has a large section re Inland Revenue it refers only to information about Tax rates etc not the people working there. The 1943 has even less information although in addition to the offices listed in the image there are several other address spread throughout the City Centre area associated with the Inland Revenue.

In addition to the George Street Site there were others :-

Depending upon who set up your system initially it is possible that this is a hangover from that BUT to be on the safe side you may want to consider resetting your Router password (this will affect your wifi devices)

What I'm wondering is if this "feature" of a transient hitch-hiker has always been there.  With all three computers I've had since I've lived in the house, two bb suppliers and several routers.  I've also noticed it with the computers at a local commercial premises and the library.

Is it me?

Jane :-)

1)  Do you own or have you used a tablet ? (that's the reference to a lenovo tab) - if this "hitchhiker" is at every computer you use that would suggest that it is your device

2) Interference is possible if your Router is not properly shielded - although this is more likely to be experienced through wi-fi. Even cables in the house  electrical devices switching on and off can cause interference in older routers.

Have you tried the suggestion from Facebook's help:

Apparently the only way I can stop these notifications coming to my phone is if I go to Apps, then the Facebook app and click on Notifications.  The only problem is I don't have a Facebook app on my 'phone, so how are these messages coming to me?  When I looked at the Facebook page regarding notifications it just states that you can't turn them off but you can just select which notifications you want to get, and although I can click on PC and emails, I can't click on mobile 'phone as it's not highlighted.  >:(
You don't need a mobile or App to stop the notifications. Access your Facebook account by your usual method and go through settings, although at some point in the past you may have accidentally agreed to text messages but this can be turned off by the methods outlined above.
