I recently found this photo in with some of my father's (John B. Shivas) photos and documents. I would really be interested in finding out all the names in this photo as well as the year it was taken. The event appears to be in honour of Remembrance Day as they are all wearing their poppies.

The hand writing on the back of the photo appears to be from my late and very dear cousin Lucille Hudson from Invergordon. The names on the back of the photo are hand written as follows:
"Front row......Macleod, Dingwall / Sandy McLellan / Eckie Murray / Davie / Colin Urquhart/
Next to Colin Urquhart - Heck Stewart".

I recognized Sandy Mclellan and Davey (coon) Ross.
I think this is a reunion of the Seaforth Btn that they were all in during WW2.

2nd row behind Eckie Murray and David Ross is Donald MacDonald from The Heights Strathpeffer.

Hi Harry! You could be right about this being a Seaforth re-union. Certainly Colin Urquhart was among those who were with the 51st & captured at St Valery.This would be the 4th Battalion, which I believe was a Territorial outfit. My cousin Richard Geddes was a member but did not make it as he was killed near Abbeville in the retreat from the Panzers.

Venue could have been the Legion, Dingwall. At the back left is Joe Campbell (decd.), Jimmy Steele (decd), Donald Armstrong (Piper), 6th Left Hugh Chisholm (Piper – decd.), then Murdo Mackenzie (decd.).

In the middle row 4th left/right could be Basil MacManus (Butcher - decd.), 2nd from right in middle row is the late Hugh "Aultbea" Urquhart, footballer.

1st on the left front row is the late George Macleod, Pipe Major, Dingwall and 3rd left the late Duncan Mackenzie, Legion Stalward/Chairman.

Saw this while browsing and recognised some familiar faces. Hope it is of help.
