Hi. I'm a 'soft southerner' trying to find out about a notorious gang in Glasgow called 'The Cheeky 40'. My dad, George Adams born 1933 in Ingleston Street, mentioned that an uncle of his was a member of this gang. Unfortunately, my dad isn't around any more to ask more. Has anyone else heard of this gang???? It's possible that the uncle was called Willie.....but i don't know how far back my dad would be talking about.

George lived in Southampton for 40+ years & never once revisited Glasgow or even talked about it in any great depth, to me & my brothers.....we realised that it hadn't been the best of times.

If there's anyone who knows about this 'Cheeky 40', Ingleston St, the Adams' family or just about the area at that time, i would love to hear from you. (Also reference Everard Cruickshanks Adams/Mary Ann Stewart Jeppesen/Rankin Memorial Hospital/657 Edgefauld Road......)

Many thanks from Pauline 'newbie' Saunders nee Adams xx
