You're right Hamish - the girl you mention is Annela Ross now Flynn. Annela still lives in the town and works at the Fire Station.

The girl on the left of the 2nd row might be Lynda Wright. She somehow ended up in the year below in our class in the Academy. On the right of the back row might be Murray Sinclair if he had a blonde streak in his hair. His father was a Bank manager and they moved to Orkney. I met his sister Katrina - was on the school cruise on the Dunera in approx 1965.

Hello Emily - it's great that you have remembered almost all of our names. This was class 1A (school year 1964/1965). The boy on the end of the back row was indeed Murray Sinclair who had a white streak in his hair. I remember Murray because he, Valerie MacKenzie and I were all joint junior dux of Invergordon Academy the previous year. Charlie, David, Valerie and myself are all still living in Invergordon. I work at the Fire Service District Ofice. Jane emigrated to Australia with her husband and family in 1981 and we still keep in touch with each other. How about you - are you still in Alness? If I remember correctly you used to work in the bank with Jane.

I just realise I meant to say the girl on the left of the 3rd row, not the 2nd row as I originally put.
The person that Emily could not identify might be Lynda Wright.
