Well Sue How about some names so the rest of us know who you are talking about Please !

Standing at back, next to Gurmeet, 2nd from left is Sandy Maclean. Next to him I think is Christopher Rae (headmaster's son). The lad on the left standing is one of the Shepherds. Seated 2nd from left is Monica Rhoeling, (Michael and Erwin's sister) and standing on the right is definately David (Ginge) Mackay. The lad in the middle at top with his mouth open may be Kenny Mcfarlane and next to him may be Daldon Ross's son (the Chemist).

Margaret Watson, front row, 2nd right

Guessing at Donald Hossack, back row, extreme right.
Added by Margaret Tong on 22 March 2011
That's not Donald Hossack (Buddles), he's at least 3 years older than that class. Think it could be Tony Archer.

Sue Florence, regards to you, you are absolutely correct, Alan Doull it is, I could not remember his name. I am deeply saddened that he is the late Alan Doull.
Added by Was Tony Archer on 23 March 2011
Aye, Sue. I only knew my contemporaries when I went to Cromarty for my summer holidays and now, 50 years later, the ages and time are a blur.

Hi Tony, do you remember when a few of us were down on the piles under the harbour - when Billy Watson (Beem) fell in and you grabbed him by the hair when he came up to stop him going down again and all he could say was "I went down with my eyes open". Lol (Classic Beem)

Hi Sue,
How are you?hope this finds you in fine fettle. Aye, I remember, theres a lot I remember about my roots, happy days! Oh to be able to turn back the clock. Is Beem still around? and I heard from Helmut Malitz last year,he's over by Fraserburgh. I see looking on google streetmap that the pier is falling down,I'm not to sure that the younger generation are looking after our town too well, we might have to sort them out, whadaya say?

So many young boys fell in the harbour but lived to tell the tale. My brother (`nother) fell in three times, once in between Albert`s two boats.
