I am wondering if the man in the middle is "Barnie" who used to run the boilers at the hospital. He lived up past Tomich farm just before Newmore Brae. He also used to coach teams at the "Tug-O-War" at the highland games...I don't remember his last name, think he was Irish.....

Harry I think this man is a bit too clean for Barnie, and he is standing up too straight, if you remember Barnie had a wooden leg.

Gordie, you are probably right re the cleanliness; I didn't know he had a wooden leg.

Harry, his full name was Barnie McGurk.

I think his name was Barney McGurk, and didn't he always wear a cap? And push a bike on his travels?

Yes that's him Mcgurk, and yes he pushed a bike...think he was fond of his drink too...
