Tommy Leith on his 80th birthday
celebrated ....where else ...the Ibrox blue room!

 
Tommy was born at No.7 Summer Street Bridgeton,
on 13 Jan 1922 son of Robert & Annie Leith. (photo above)
Sadly his Da died on 20th Jan 1923 a week after his 1st birthday and his Ma died when he was only 8 yrs old.

But from such a traumatic start in life, Tommy went on to enjoy a happy life married to Mary and the father of four children. A loving father and grandfather sadly missed ....
but not forgotten.

 
Tommy died on 29th Nov.2003

 

 See Tommy's 1939 army photo

 

Gordon also sent me the photo of Parkhead children at the close with his sister Carol Leith
