Invergordon Academy, 1st Year Boys, 1969

1st year boys picture, taken in 1969 outside the Technical Block. The picture was taken of the guys who were in one of the technical classes, so not all of the year were there. I am at the back, 3rd from left, between Dedrick Dalgarno and Ian Mitchell.

(Ron has added a note of correction: "This might have been second year and not 1st year......victim of poor memory these days!" - Site Admin.)

Ok...here's a stab at identifying everyone....apologies to those guys I fail to id correctly ... Any help appreciated.
Back row: Angus Cameron, Dedrick Dalgarno, Ron Fraser, Ian Mitchell, Stephen Campbell, Ian Ross, Phillip Ferguson, Ian? Reid, John Cormack?
Front row: Gordon Miller, Jerome ?, Gordon? Forsyth, Sandy Mackenzie, Ian Wilson, ?? (lived in Milton), Bruce Graham, Donald Ross.

The only Jerome at Invergordon during that time that I can recall is Jerome Carson?

That's the one ... thanks Kmmc.
Also.... I made a grave error by naming Sandy incorrectly... Should be Maclennan not MacKenzie .... sorry Sandy.
Also... in the back row it's James Reid not Ian.
The name of the little guy in the front between Ian Wilson and Bruce Graham remains a mystery though????

Was the guy standing next to Ian Wilson - who lived in Milton - nicknamed Noddy?
Added by Kmmc on 04 June 2007
Sorry Kmmc.. don't remember that.
He had two sisters as I recall. One older and one younger (or perhaps his twin). They came over from Northern Ireland but they weren't originally from there I think.

Come to think of it ... if it is Noddy... then his name is Dennis Young if I remember correctly.
Added by Kmmc on 05 June 2007
That's it.... well remembered.... Mystery solved....
Added by Ron Fraser on 06 June 2007
Thanks for the correction Ron. That is Dennis Young between Ian and Bruce (had 2 sisters Mary and Rosalind). Front row far right is Donald Cameron. Well done with these names after all these years.
