Digbeth Kid, whose real name was Harold Hancox, "stood-up" for the Peaky Blinders. He had no previous criminal record and was a timid, nervous boy.
Digbeth Kid comes to The Garrison Pub, where Thomas and his brothers are looking for able-body men to work for them. Digbeth arrives with a wooden gun, in a holster his sister made for him. After getting the job, he is later picked up by the police for illegal betting. While in jail, his throat is slit by one of Darby Sabini's men.
