Hi William,

Welcome to the Forum.

I'll PM you a list of the Pinkertons listed in the 1960 Directory of Belfast and Ulster.

There was a Shirley Wright from somewhere off the Ormeau Road. She was at Victoria College in the fifties.

I was in the 41st BB with Billy (Pinkie) and if I remember he played football for Linfield for a short time.
Met him and his wife several years ago while on vacation from Canada and still recognised him.
