Hi there just wondering where you sourced the info for tommy. He is my great uncle. His birth name is Walter Valentine Welsh (not welch). As he was born on Valentine's day! Tommy and thomas being part of his stage name for boxing. My mother is very keen to know if you have any other pictures and to know which of his brothers is referred to in your article . As it may have been her father. Billy welsh.
Hi there, many thanks for the information, how interesting, do you know the year Tommy was born, and the date he passed away? I'll now update the article. We sourced the info from Krayology, a book by John Bennett. I am not sure if we have any photos but will have a look for you!
Thanks. I will look into your questions and get back to you on the dates. He died in the care of his wife. Dorris Welsh (also of romani/showman blood). Billy welsh married Isabel , dorris sister. My gran. And dorris is both pictured and mentioned in a book written .by the brothers. I have some nice pics of tom if you would like to add them?
Sorry for delay in getting back to you. He died on 1990. Not sure on exact date. I will have a go at adding pics. A young pic of him on Brighton beech when he visited with my gran . He was 6ft 4 in these days. And another of him with his lurchers
