Date Added: 07 November 2006 Contributor: Ruth MacGregor Year: 1956 Picture No: 1779

Ruth says:

"This photo has 1958 written on it, but that would make us all 11 or 12 then. I think 1956 is a more likely date.

Boy in the centre at the back is James Riddle who went on to become pipe major in the Scots Guards famous for writing TUMBLE DOWN MOUNTAIN pipe tune. I think he married Pauline Gilmour who is sat in the front row of this picture. James lived at the chicken farm on the sutors. Comment left on 22 March 2008 at 19:31 by Anon
I think the girl in the middle with the glasses is Patricia Davy, the girl at the end is Helen Bremner and the boy at the back next to James Riddle is David Bremner. Comment left on 29 April 2008 at 23:08 by Roger Walters
I can confirm that the girl on the front far left is my Sister Helen Bremner I too would place this picture around 1956. She now lives in Ontario Canada. Comment left on 24 October 2008 at 21:44 by James A Bremner
The handsome young chap seventh from the left is my uncle, David Bremner, who left Cromarty with my mother Carol and their parents, Jackie and Margery not long after this picture was taken. James, is Helen at the end of the row on the right? Comment left on 18 April 2009 at 16:40 by Iain Fulford
I think the girl on Pat Davies right is Varri (sp?) Marks? Does anyone know where Patricia Davies is? We were good friends. Comment left on 19 April 2009 at 00:32 by Hazel Clark
