I found this very small photo in a box of my father's photos, Ian. It may have belonged to my grandfather who is in the photo. I'll pass it on to you if you would like to have it.. It's good to hear that someone has been able to identify it! Can you put of the names I mentioned to the people in the photo? Comment left on 24 March 2006 at 15:33 by Campbell Ross

Hi Ian,
I was surprised and delighted to come across this picture with my parents in it whilst I was searching for Macdonald on the Cromarty website, my Father is the one in uniform, Royal Marine Victor Taylor with my Mother Hughina, nee Macdonald of Mains Farm Cottages on his left. They moved to England, Stourport on Severn, Worcestershire with my sister Emily, brother Bill and cousin Tom in the early 1930's. I was born in Stourport on Severn and I will be showing the picture to my cousins Betty Dudley, nee Lovejoy and Peter Lovejoy whose mother was formerly Isabelle Macdonald my mothers sister from Mains Farm Cottages who also married a Royal Marine Arthur Lovejoy, who came from a farming family in West Sussex.Peter is still farming there in Heyshott on Lord Cowdray's Estate.

Is anyone able to identify Hugh McTavish in this photo. I think he may have been the son Of Murdoch McTavish brother of my Great Grandmother Christina. Comment left on 03 November 2009 at 01:48 by Carolyn Sheehan
Carolyn, Did you see my comment (picture #2497, Albion House)? I've been wracking my brains trying to figure which generation of MacTavishes this Hugh MacTavish belonged to. If he's the one I'm thinking of, he would have been a brother of Mrs Chrissie Clements, and your Great Grandmother would have been his aunt.

I remember this Hugh MacTavish very well. He had been a police officer in London and later worked as a security officer at the Elstree Film Studios. Mr MacTavish and his wife came to live in Cromarty in the 1950s. They had a house on the Denny. He was a big, strong,"once a policeman always a policeman" kind of man. His age would have been around the late thirties at the time of the photograph. The man in the photograph most likely to be Hugh is fifth from the left at the back. There must be people who lived in Cromarty in the 50s and 60s who remember Mr.MacTavish.

Annie Bryce is named as being in this photo - I have found out that she lived in my house in Duke Street in 1962. I'd love to know more about her and if anyone can identify her in this pic. Comment left on 20 February 2012 at 19:40 by Sheila Currie
My grandfather John Macdonald, cousin Thomas Campbell MacDonald, Victor and Hughina Taylor (nee Macdonald) my mother and father, sister Emily and brother William (Bill) all lived at 5, Duke Street, Cromarty in the 1930's. My grandfather died in 1934 and shortly afterwards the family moved to Stourport on Severn. My grandfather worked at Cromarty Mains farm and my mother worked at Cromarty House.

Annie Bryce is buried in the 'pirates' graveyard in the family plot. I remember her but she was an old wifie. The stone is on your lefthand side if you veer to your left as you go in. Comment left on 21 February 2012 at 12:27 by Sue florence
