Just came across this interesting web site and it takes me back to my days of youth. I'm pretty sure this photograph is of my grandfather, John Hay Angus, who has 2 sons still in Invergordon, Roland and Finlay Angus. My father also worked at Inchindown; his name is George McConnell.

Having shown this photo to my Mother Pat Donald (Nee Angus) I can confirm that this is John Hay Angus who was also my Grandfather.

Great to hear that Cochrane, when I first seen the photograph the resemblance to my older brother Ian was uncanny. Thanks to Aunt Pat for confirming.

To men, like this man, Inchindown was just a job. It was a lot more than that. Had Germany successfully blockaded the major ports of Britain the Royal Navy Fleet could not be supplied with oil. This is why facilities like Inchindown were constructed, they would become the only means of supply. So these men had a very important job indeed.
