Searching for the sons of poet Leslie Reid

Thank you so much to everyone who has been helping us return Leslie Reid's poetry legacy to his sons over the past 24 hours. Help has come from around the globe including much appreciated backing from poets Judith Taylor and Jane Aldous and from Don Share the editor of Poetry magazine.

Although we have had some leads, but we haven't yet found Lez's sons and are relying on your help to do so. Thanks to those of you who have put us in touch with the local Devon press. And as suggested, here is a picture of Leslie Reid the year before he died - probably at a similar age to his sons Joseph Reid and Duncan Reid. Perhaps this will help jog memories.
