Canfactory - is David Clow Johnnie Clow’s older brother?

Meg,

I only remember Geraldine and John Clow but they lived in Clyde Terrace near you. Was there definitely a third member of the family?

David Clow stayed in Kirkhall Gardens, I think his dad worked for Shellmex. I think I am also correct in saying David attended Ardrossan Academy. Lately he stayed in the newish flats across from Ardrossan fire station, and was a great Rangers supporter I saw him occasionally at Winton park. I think he was an only child.

Meekan,

That fits in more with my thinking. David was a stalwart Rangers supporter who travelled throughout Europe to follow his team. I think he may have been a cousin of John and Geraldine Clow from Clyde Terrace

Meg, Laurence is correct. Johnnie only had a sister, Geraldine. David was his cousin.

I remember Geraldine and John but couldn’t remember if there was a brother. Thanks for confirming.
