This is the same class as shown in picture #390, but 2 years later. I am the one on the extreme left, next to George Strachan with Dennis Mellon and Torquil Cowan further along the row. George Anderson is in the back row, second from left, and Nigel Benson is in the middle of the row. I hope others can fill in the many gaps in my memory.

Rear row fourth from right..Norley Swanson, next right one of the Mitchell boys, last in the row is Ron Stewart.
Second row wearing kilt is George Strachan. Next to him is Blake Budge, then Dennis. Third from end of row is Douglas Leadingham, and sixth from left in rear row could be Nigel Benson. I recognise several others but names escape me.

Norman, there weren't many Macraes in Invergordon around this time. I can only think of Hec Macrae's family, and a Sheila Macrae that was in school with me. Would she be your sister - and if so, where is she now?

Joe West on the end of the middle row. I think he left before the end of the year. And ... Jen spells her name with one"N" and 2 "FFs. I always like to get the "A" rather than an "O" in mine (unlike John Urquhart's Mum), so thanks!
