The completed redevelopment of the flats on the north side of Joss Street. The old flats were demolished as the ground underneath was contaminated. This new development is a vast improvement. See picture #1436 which shows the redevelopment work starting.

Is this where the NAAFI used to be or was that further West?

The gas works were on this site, but there is a record in the book 'Wartime Invergordon a town transformed' of the NAAFI seeking permission to build a store there.

I guess that is Tel-El-Keeber cottages to left. Built to commemorate a battle in Egypt in 1882? If the new houses are indeed on the site of the Naafi huts this is where kids of all ages used to congregate on winter nights to roller skate (the whole area was smooth concrete) or play "kick the can". No matter how cold it was, hordes of us laughed and played among the Nissan huts there.

The gas works were on the site before the war, during the war the NAAFI was there, then prefabs occupied the site before the first flats were built. These were demolished, the ground decontaminated and the flats featured in the above photo were built.
