I remember Derry Duff very well also his sister Jessie. At that time I lived at no 5 Duke Street
which is just round the corner. I often wondered what became of the Duffs. Interesting to know that he was Paul's grandad.

Thanks Garve for putting me right about Paul, I did assume it was him although it seemed a bit odd.
I`m sure I would have heard about it long ago if it was the case, thanks again Iris

Hi Iris, my grandfather John MacDonald, cousin Tom Campbell MacDonald, mother Ina Taylor(nee MacDonald), sister Emily and brother Bill also lived at 5 Duke Street up until late 1934, not sure if my father Vic Taylor did as he served in the Royal Marines on various Royal Navy ships including HMS Cardiff during both world wars and I understand the ships often visited the area. I do not know your age but have seen some of your photographs on the site and wonder if you were around and can remember my family before they left Cromarty?
