"Kathleen ?" is Kathleen Ross who lived at what was then 4 Outram Street, next door to me. I understand she died from MS. Great picture Joe, I recall many of them in it. David Russell lived next to me at 2 Outram Street and Bobby Fair lived across the street in the prefab. There are 9 in the back row, you have named 8, who is the missing one?
Added by Harry O'Neill on 10 May 2008
Harry, thanks for Kathleen's surname. I am not sure who I have missed out from the back row but it may be Keith Hermitage (3rd from right). I spoke to Mike Bell last year and had a couple of e-mails from Bobby Fair but apart from short sharp visits I have not really been back to Invergordon - I still have relatives there! Judging by your comments on other subjects I would surmise that you will be a little older than me - I am 64 next week. Anyway good to hear from you.

Joe, from this photo I can see that we were not in the same class at school. I obviously remember you from when you visited Nora. I should have waited to see all of your photos before commenting!!!!!

Re 'Jim' Turner in back row, was that not Ian Turner who lived in The Cottages? He had an older sister and younger sister June.
Added by Ron Stewart on 20 July 2018
I think the Ian Turner that you are referring to Ronald is a bit younger than this “vintage”. The one you mention appears in picture #820 in an Academy football team.
Added by Graham MacKenzie on 20 July 2018
Hi Graham. Almost certain it is the same Ian in both pictures because he was the same school year as my brother(Charles). In the football photo there is a about a 4 year age gap from eldest to youngest because our senior classes were relatively small.

Hi George
When I look at some of the other characters in the photo you are right. I thought that Ian Turner was similar age to the likes of George Strachan but he must have been slightly older.
I stand corrected Ronald !!!!
Added by Graham Mackenzie on 25 July 2018
That's OK Graham. Ian T. was in a class one year senior to G.S.(and me!).
