Hogmanay 1957

Taken in Campbell Ross's home on Hogmanay 1957 by his father I think! I am afraid that I am unable to name everyone on it.

Hello George, it's been a long time since we last saw each other. I've listed the names here for you. From left -

Back row: You, Me, John Clements and Arthur Brittenden.
Next down: Grace Jack, Margaret Hogg (slightly lower) and Veronica Watson.
Next down: Maureen Fraser, my mother and Dorothy Manson.
Front row: Willie Duncan, Pat Jack and my sister Avril.

Very sadly one or two are no longer with us.

Whatever happened to Willie Duncan?

Hi Campbell.....Who is on George's right between Grace and who I think is Janet. I've managed to get the others?
Added by Alex Grant on 27 August 2011
Campbell - you missed out Oliver Davie between Janet & Grace.
Added by John Ferguson on 27 August 2011
Hi Alex. The girl with her head tilted beside Grace is Margaret Hogg, and in front of me is Veronica Watson. Janet is second from the left of the photo beside Jimmy Brewster. Maureen Fraser is in front of Grace. My description probably confused everyone, sorry!!

For Sue and Mary, you are right about Dorothy and Arthur, Sue. I don't know where Willie ended up after he left Cromarty. I know he was in the Merchant Navy, and then I think he was onshore as a radio operator, but after that I have no idea. If anyone knows, it would good to hear.

Campbell.........Thanks for the reply. I should have made it a bit more clear (meaning George's left looking at photo) Oliver Davie was the one I was looking for. Thanks John.
Added by Alex Grant on 27 August 2011
Sorry, John. I had Oliver in originally, but decided to rewrite my description and accidentally missed him out. I wonder if he is still around somewhere! Where have all the years gone?

Thats a great shot Campbell ..I'm glad to say I recognised most of the faces too !

Thanks John. I'm pretty sure my Dad took it at the time. Frightening how time passes, eh! Hope things are still good with you..
