A picture of me at age 35, when I was a telegraph operator at Canadian National Telecommunications in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada. It was my last day there.
My education at Invergordon Academy fared me well as I went on to college and became a steam engineer at a large hospital in Kelowna British Columbia until early retirement. I then did a bit of engineering instruction at a college until permanent retirement.
Always have Invergordon at heart..

In front of me and to the right, too bad cant see more of him, is another operator whose name is Bill Mckenzie. Bill was born in Canada, but his father came from Stornoway Isle of Lewis, so Bill and I bonded very well and became good friends.
The other person is another operator, Kathie Diener a very nice lady. Kathie and I have kept in touch with each other.

I was good to see your name again Eddie. It is more than fifty years since I last saw you, although I was up at Invergordon in February this year.I've lived in Hertfordshire since 1968 and still working part-time. Happy memories of our days at the Academy.
