  1. I am replying on behalf of my aunt Freda.
    Yes her brother is David Leek, he had the hardware shop in Mill Lane, Billingham for many years, he is now retired and living in Hartlepool.

    I can’t help with Derek Towers but I did know an Eddie Towers of Cotswold Crescent Billingham, Derek will be close to 80 years of age and Eddie is about 67 years of age, a brother perhaps?.


  2. Derek Towers? Top row 3rd from right, could this be the Derek Towers of the Up North Combine Racing Pigeon Transport Organisation, Sappers Corner, Greatham, Hartlepool, daughter Pam?
