Hi Jessie and Lilian, isn't the 4th. bottom right Netta Macwilliams and 2nd. left Jock Forsythe from Saltburn who worked in Slater's bakery? Lady in white peaked hat 1st on right bottom row of "pyramid" is Mrs. Austin. I seem to remember that she and her husband did a lot for the club.

I could give you the names of most of the people in this group. My sister and I are both in it. There are eight Polish soldiers in it. Mr. & Mrs Austin are there, Jock Forsyth and his wife, Mr. & Mrs Macfarlane who taught at Invergordon Academy. Alice Wilson is not there, nor is Nita Macgregor.

Go ahead and name them Irene. I have no trouble picking out Macfarlane (Lofty) but not his wife (Titch).

Jeff`s surname is Walker - I remembered after sending my message. He was in the Navy and married Pat McCaw, whose father was stationed in Invergordon with the RAF.

I think the polish soldier in the second row far left is my father, Maksymillian (Max) Bronny.

Jock Forsyth is indeed the second from left front row; he was my grandfather. Can't say for sure where my grandmother Sally is...
