    I recognise several signatures in this photograph.
    1) J Laing is my father, John Laing.
    2) Newlands is Tommy Newlands, my uncle through marriage to my father’s sister, Isabella.
    3) E Leslie is Ernie Leslie whose daughter Muriel was in the same class as me at Broughton Secondary 1956-59.
    I assume the signatures are those of the players and officials who feature in the photograph of Leith Hawthorn FC 1945-46 posing with six trophies.

    Hello Bob, you are correct, the signatures do match up with the Leith Hawthorns photograph (0114-007). Thank you for adding names to some of the faces. The signatures on the paper don’t line up with the people in the photo – do you think you could indicate the people you know (eg. back row, second left, etc)?

    Also, are you related to the Laing brothers who ran a foundry?

    The captain of the team is my grandad Andrew Campbell. The most amazing man. He really was the best.
