My uncle was John Leith and he was born 1911 in South Shields. Co Durjham. He is or was the son of William Leith and wife Ann, nee Simpson (also from South Shields) and he had one sister, my mother Thomasina born in 1912. His father died in 1913 and his wife remarried.. He was in the Merchant navy in the 1950's and that is my total knowledge of him. I have no means of getting any more information as I was orphaned at age 8 and not told of my family history, so I am starting from scratch.

If anyone has any info please contact me. Many Thanks
