Thanks, Tony. It seems there was quite a Scottish influence in those days.

The name Orr seems to ring another Everton connection bell, too, but I can't think what.

George Orr?

Chris; that's it! Thanks.

It's not a very common surname so I wonder if they're related?

You never know, Bill. A Gwladys Street lad, and someone who could usually be found on Goodison Road ready to talk to all and sundry. Bought all sorts from him over the years.

Unusual name for sure.

An Orr was also the pilot in Catch 22 who kept crashing his plane until he was so good at it, he crashed it far enough away from his base to make it to Sweden and leave the war behind. The link to Everton escapes me.
