Jeez I remember and recognise almost all the people in this photo. This was my class at KGS, but I am not in the photo. I think this must be primary 3. My parents sent me down to Aberdeen for a year. Is John Schollay the famous former drummer and layabout Nonny?

Nope, that is not Dougie Lloyd in the back row second from the left.
It is me. Tim.
Miss Donald wrote in my report "too much capering"
I have this on good authority, my Mother!
