Is Fraser in the back row a definite identification? My aunt thinks it may be her brother-in-law Peter Taylor, who lived in Bayview Crescent. Comment left on 11 November 2003 by Catherine Penman. nee Hossack
You are right, Catherine. I remember Peter now that you have mentioned his name. I was unsure of a couple of players. Hope the others are right. If not, let me know. Comment left on 12 November 2003 by Dorothy Ewen, nee Robertson
Would suggest that the Referee is Colin Murray (no relation) who hailed from Evanton although a bit hazy it looks very like him. Comment left on 23 April 2008 at 18:51 by Duncan Murray
I would agree. He used to work part-time with my Father David Bremner (Native of Cromarty) in the Novar Arms Bar in Evanton in the late fifties/early sixties. Colin's day job was as an insurance agent. Comment left on 24 April 2008 at 21:36 by David Bremner
Is Tarzan Donnie Macfarlane from Rosemarkie? Comment left on 31 August 2017 at 22:34 by John Mackenzie
Yes to the Tarzan question and the front row Mcleman is Wee Hughie my brother Peter Gilmour's best friend. Comment left on 10 August 2021 by George Ewen Gilmour
