Well Sue How about some names so the rest of us know who you are talking about Please ! Comment left on 28 February 2011 at 01:41 by Anon
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). Comment left on 20 March 2011 at 14:23 by Was Tony Archer

That's not Donald Hossack (Buddles), he's at least 3 years older than that class. Think it could be Tony Archer. Comment left on 23 March 2011 at 09:00 by Sue Florence
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. Comment left on 23 March 2011 at 12:28 by Was Tony Archer
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. Comment left on 23 March 2011 at 22:36 by Margaret Tong
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) Comment left on 25 March 2011 at 15:54 by Sue Florence
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. Comment left on 27 March 2011 at 15:17 by Dorothy Ewen (Robertson)
