He famously scored the goal that won the F A Cup for Bradford in 1911. He later volunteered for service in WW1 and fell at Passchendaele. Jimmy and his friends were commemorated during “The Long Road to Passchendaele” Scottish Centenary weekend at Zonnebeke, Flanders, Belgium, on 19 and 20 August 2017.
