The man second left with the flat cap (don't know his name) was the Grieve (gaffer/foreman) at Inverbreakie Farm. I remember his face well from the tattie howkin when he kept a close watch to make sure all the crop was lifted. It's interesting that the Cup final was played at Inverg. Presumably as it was a neutral ground half way between the two competing clubs. Invergordon had a good team at this date but not good enough!

Is the person in the middle of the photograph, behind the cup, Arthur Scott? It looks very much like him.

I think the man in the coat, collar and tie visible between the two youngsters on the right hand side of the photograph is Chic Ogilvie, Alness, who was one of the all time Ross County FC greats as a player, trainer, kit man from post war right through to the nineties.

Sam MacTaggart (spg?) was the accountant in the Commercial Bank at Invergordon. Following amalgamations, this business became the National Commercial Bank and then the Royal Bank and continues to do business today from the same premises at 58 High Street.

The grieve at Inverbreakie Farm would have been Sandy Fraser grandfather of John Fraser & Alex Rose.

Yes Liz, you are right that is my Granda. Wee man, tough as nails and straight a man as anyone could ever meet. I spent all my holidays at Inverbreakie Farm working with him and the others on the farm. All I ever wanted to do was please him and make him proud of me, with the effort I put in. We were all so lucky to have him, Grannie, Cathie and Andy after our dad died.
