Here is a picture of my Grandfather Alex Murray (Eckie) taken late 1939/early 1940. He is aged around 24. He is still living in Invergordon at the age of 98 and I am sure the older generation with be familiar with him. Great picture.

Eckie will be getting a visit from Seaforth Highlanders Association representative very shortly. Great man. I remember when I was a kid, just a bairn, he would let me onto the Milk float; I've never forgotten that, way back late 1940s.

Eckie is my great uncle, brother to my gran Cath Maclennan. He is the last surviving of 8 siblings. Namely Duncan Mary Murdo, Cath, Willie Bella, & Donnie.

So sorry to hear I always remember my time as a kid when he would take me on the milk cart, I grew up moved on through the years, lo and behold my first Seaforth Associating dinner. He was there, I told him who I was he told me about my childhood.
Rest in peace Eckie
