Date a guess. Is this Einar again?
Picture added on 18 April 2006
Bruce Moar send this and the Einar football photo in, when I showed him these and others at work. This photo is a 1960s KGS class photo, when either 3AL or 4AL about 1967. I can provide all the names, if you'd like them. [Administrator says: Please do, and the names of the people in the team photo- just send it as a comment]

Bottom far left is not Judith Martin as she is in the middle row but I cannot remember her name.
The girl on the right of Judith Martin in the middle row is Carol Thomson.

Margaret is perfectly correct. It all comes back to me now.

I was wondering if someone can confirm if Robin Harcus is John Robin Harcus? I think he was known by his middle name by some people?
Added by Derek Harcus on 27 March 2007
Looks like him. Did he come from Stronsay?
Added by William Watters on 28 March 2007
Front row second from left is Marion Shearer

The Robin Harcus is a son of Geordie Harcus who was skipper on the north isles boat - MV Orcadia. They stayed in Buttquoy Crescent - his sister Helen is married to Jack Muir, the 'Peddie Kirk' minister

It is 1AL in 1965 and I am fairly sure of the date as Andy Miller moved to the A class to get technical fairly soon after we started first year.
