Yes, if we are talking about the same man, we are related, do you still see them, if you see him, tell him Donald says hello.

That will suprise him.

Cheers Flam.

Hi Valleyboy I received a pm from you concerning John Blair,since I dont know how to send them back,I will pass on your message to him,I think he still goes to Celtic Park and I see him outside the pub in Keppochhill Rd, about 20 yards from where he was born,Hi Rainmaker38 I presume you must be named after your Grandfather Donald or his son Donnie, Buntyq thank you for sending me an PM concerning a photo of your old house in Auckland St,I tried to PM you but it would not allow me,it must have brought back nostalgic memories when the new residents in your old house let you do a wee recce,and seeing the old Air Raid Shelter at the bottom of the garden must have moved you Cheers Flim

I'm presuming you lived at 78 Sunnylaw St much later than the 1950's - I'm doing some family history and find the name of a Thomas Dale who registered his Mother's Death in 1950 living at the same address - it would be a miracle if you knew of him. But what a coincidence............

elso, I think I was in the same class as the Peter Miller you mention at St Theresa's but my memory was that he was called Jimmy, I don't know if that was a nickname. I lived in Barloch St and remember him living opposite the shops in Allander St as you describe. If he is the same person the accident happened during the school holiday's around 1962. He was great at foolball and in the school team at St Augustine's, I remember everybody being shocked at what had happened.
