No, my dad was Jim - same as me, my grandfather, great... ad infinitum - too lazy to think of another one, I guess.
His nickname was 'Scotty' as he was born in Glasgow, though he had a broad Liverpool accent. He is mentioned in Alvah Bessie's book, 'Men in Battle' (p 82 7 Seas edition) as 'a young Scots lad fast asleep and dribbling) on the train journey over the Pyrenees.
Thank you a million times - the end of a long search!
