Think it might be 1964. Could be Ian Allison second right.

Yes George, definitely Ian Allison.

I agree George and John; I am the un-named one. Fraser Dryden put me onto this site a couple of days ago. Brings back lots of good memories.

Hi Iain, glad to hear Fraser put you onto the site. Yes you are right, there are lots of good memories. I now live out near Portmahomack; sadly Invergordon is not the town we knew and grew up in - I hardly no anyone there now. I don't think there are more than three or four from our class who still live there.

Hello guys, good to see those photos. Hard to believe, or even accept that they were taken 40 odd years ago. I must be in denial. George looks as if he is freezing and I thought at first it must have been a cross-country race in the middle of winter, until I read the caption. Am I right in thinking that one or two in this photo must be touching 60 now? I am 57 and I was a couple or three years below all of you guys. Are there ever any school reunions for Invergordon Academy, I would love to see all my old schoolmates? Living down in Aberdeenshire now I miss out on all the crack from up North and as I get older I tend to reminisce a lot more, wondering what this one or that one are doing now. As they say age doesn't come alone. Jock are you still going down to watch the Gers? I haven't seen you for a wee while. I am still going to every home game and as many away matches as I can get tickets for. It's Caley next week and I am looking for 3 tickets if you have an inside line with anyone. I'd be very grateful.

Hi John, yes still going to home games though it has been a painfull journey home on a few occasions this year, unfortunately I don't have a contact for Caley games.
You are right John, it would be good to have a reunion; unfortunately, as I said in previous note, there doesn't seem to be anyone of our ilk in the area.

As I sit here in western New York, I can only say there is my uncle. It was fun to see.
