Truly amazing to see all these faces after so long! - especially my sister in the front row and her best friend Shirley Mackenzie. I was younger than all these but remember many of them. What fun we had....

I have a cousin James Mitchell (unfortunately I've never met him), born in 1936 in or around Invergordon. Can anyone tell me anymore about the James in the above photo? - parents names? - or maybe brothers & sisters?
Thanks Hil

Hilary, I used to live very near James Mitchell. He lived on Shore Road, Invergordon. I remember his father was called Tony Mitchell. The house has long since been demolished and I don't know where he eventually settled. I think he had a sister. I am seated in the front row and I was very friendly with Audrey Geddes, also in the front row. I lost her address in New Zealand.

Hilary, have just seen your plea re James Mitchell. He had a sister, Margaret Mitchell, and if you look up picture #891 you will see a photograph of her.

Robert Macallister (Bobby) was on trial with Blackpool FC when something showed up in an X-ray. Robert (Bobby) went through a long operation back then, lost half the rib cage, long time to recover back then. Never stopped him working though.
He was good footballer and excellent boxer, all round sports person.

If I remember James and Margaret settled in Glasgow somewhere, that was when I was 16 years old I am 69 in March.
