The idea of Edinburgh gangs is laughable. OK, some of the schemes had 'gangs' but totally unlike the Weegie wans.

Give up,Mavricker.... you are trying to re-write Scottish history.

Thank you for your help. I have friends in other forums who can further assist me with this question.
I'll let you know when I find something out.

I never heard of Edinburgh's 'keelie gang' before, and reckon there was no such thing!

Did a google search to see what i could see, and look what the first hit is:
