Boys Brigade
There is a photo on the site of the Boys Brigade 1963. Can anyone tell me if
George Thomas (Billy the Kid) is the same George who lived in Burnroyd Avenue, Crosshills as a little boy?? He had a brother called Stuart (or Stewart)?

Thanks Jack.....could you tell me how he died? I am a good bit older than he would have been. I used to live next door to the Thomas's in Crosshills, but left the area when I got married in 1961
