Hi there. It's Alistair Cuthbert (no 'son') here. This is actually a picture of Mrs Kemple's Primary Three class in Papdale. Unfortunately, I cannot help with the missing names. We left Orkney in 1981 for Glasgow and so I never saw any of these children again.

I think that could well be P3 as i would have been P4 at the time if my math is right..although if it was after summer '79 then they are P4

hallo everyone - stuart, alaistair, denise - that's me, catriona picton-phillipps middle row fourth from the right and steven is steven craigie he was my best friend and love for all my three years in orkney - i left for edinburgh with my family the next year - steven left some time shortly after for Poolewe - steven and i had to see the headmaster once at Papdale, we were playing in the willows at the stream after lunch and we had such a great time we forgot to go back to school - three years on orkney and at Papdale at that stage in my life set me up for life, it was an incredible adventure living there - steven and i lost touch around 16 years old, if anyone has any idea how i could get in touch with him please let me know - he'll always be a very important person in my life
