D.A.M. Ross was the Provost of the town, and A.W. Ross was a later Provost during the late '40s/'50s. Mr Bryce had two daughters, Agnes and Doris. Doris is married to a famous landscape artist. Mr Marshall was in charge of the bank. Mr Rose ran a coal merchants office in the town. Did W. Wilson have the grocer's shop at the bottom of the High Street?

The Dewar Trophy is not one of the Bowling Club Trophies but is played for each year in a competition run by the Norhern Bowling League.

Wilfred Wilson did indeed have the grocer's shop at 11 High Street. He was my grandfather and I knew the shop well later on when his son Charlie was running it.

I remember Charlie, very nice man. He married Alice Macleod, who was one of my teachers at the Academy, a very good teacher..Charlie Wilson's shop was the only one at that end of the High Street.

Charlie moved to the first supermarket north of Inverness (further up on the other side of the road) when Rod McGregor bought the building at no. 11, and the supermarket too. Charlie was my mother's twin brother.

I was the message boy for Charlie Wilson's shop at the bottom of the High Street - I would pedal the bike with 'messages' after school and on Saturdays. I remember the longest delivery run was to Suzy Mackenzie in Saltburn. And yes, Mrs Alice Wilson was my Primary 7 teacher. Charlie Wilson used to grow the best roses in Invergordon!

Charlie made wonderful cakes too, especially sponges.
