Sandy Fraser - Inverbreakie and Kildary

This a photo of my father Sandy Fraser, during his service in the Royal Navy, in which he served during the 2nd World War and during the Suez conflict. I can remember that two of the ships he served on were HMS Corunna and HMS Arethusa.
Originally from Inverbreakie Farm, son of the Grieve, also Sandy Fraser and Nellie. He was the brother of Tommy Fraser, formerly of Culisse Farm, Nigg and Cathie Rose, (nee Fraser), Inverbreakie Farm and then Salvasen Crescent, Alness - all now deceased. Unfortunately, my father passed away at the very young age of 34 years, in May 1959. We were living in Kildary at the time and my mother, Anne, originally from Govan, Glasgow, lives there to this day. She was left a widow with 3 sons of 9yrs (John, living in Ellon); 4yrs (Brian - deceased); 2yrs (Norman, living in Kelso), with a 4th on the way (Alexander now living in Dingwall). She did fantastic and despite all the odds and with great help from my granny and grandfather and my Auntie, we were always well turned-out, well-fed, and warm in our little two-bedroomed semi in Parkhill, Kildary, besides Ken’s Garage.

Would that be Tommy Fraser who lived at Teaninich Farm in Alness?

David, no it is not the same Tommy Fraser. My uncle Tommy died in the early 1970s, aged 43yrs at Cullisse Farm, where he had worked for a good number of years after he came out of the Royal Navy.
