Many thanks to SC (and apologies for not getting back, can receive but not send emails) for the following.
Falkirk based labour historian James D Young passed away on 23rd June last aged 81. Obituaries for him were published in The Herald and The Scotsman newspapers. Here is a link to his obituary on the Scottish Republican Socialist Movement website.
Jimmy was a prolific writer who had a keen interest in Irish working class history, and shortly before he died, he finished a biography of James Connolly which will be published posthumously.
